Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane says matters discussed within the Cabinet are not public.
Zwane was answering questions in Parliament following his statement saying the Cabinet has agreed to establish a judicial inquiry into four banks which cut ties with the Gupta family business, Oakbay Investments.
