ANC concerned courts 'overreaching' in Cabinet reshuffle case

The ANC says that it is concerned by the North Gauteng High Court's decision ordering President Jacob Zuma to hand over all documents related to his decision to reshuffle the Cabinet.

Zuma has been given five days to provide record and reason for the axing of former finance minister Pravin Gordhan and his former deputy Mcebisi Jonas.

The ANC says that the order shows that the judiciary is encroaching on the executive and has urged Zuma to appeal, reports EWN's Barry Bateman.

The ANC says this judgment signifies an unfettered encroachment of the judiciary into the realm of the executive.
