Pravin Gordhan expected to answer on how he will fix SA's fiscus

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.

Listen to the full conversation from The Midday Report with Stephen Grootes:

We expect him to speak on South Africa's fiscal policy and some clarification on how he was moved back to the position of Finance Minister.

Govan Whittles, EWN Reporter

There has been speculation that he will answer on questions surrounding the nuclear deal and SAA.
