Bonang Matheba on Nathi Mthethwa

Bonang Matheba, has dragged Nathi Mthethwa after he defended R22 000 000 flag project for South Africa. 

Taking to social media, Bonang Matheba said that Nathi should be fired. She wrote: "Fire this man. Please. You’re useless and we all hate you @NathiMthethwaSA. You have no clue what you’re doing. Go away! @NathiMthethwaSA.

But Mthethwa defended the decision, saying that the flag project was not being wasteful and was part of his department’s mandate.

"One of the mandates of this department is to transform the heritage landscape among others, build museums, build monuments,” the minister said.

Mthethwa said that the flag project also marked a break from colonialism and apartheid.

“It carries and epitomises democratic values,” he said.

The department said that the flags and flag poles would be constructed on a massive scale and would commemorate the country’s history
