Pravin Gordhan will be sworn in as South Africa's third Finance Minister in less than a week, following President Jacob Zuma's announcement on Sunday.
This comes after Zuma’s decision, to remove Nhlanhla Nene and appoint David van Rooyen as finance minister, was strongly criticised, seeing the rand lose significant value.
EWN reporter, Govan Whittles said Gordhan is expected to elaborate on his plans to restore fiscal stability at a press conference after the economic impact of the recent cabinet reshuffling.
