There is a hurricane strength political and economic storm raging around Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba's position.
The Minister on Monday postponed a briefing to give clarity on the way forward for the country’s economy.
On Friday night, Moody’s announced its decision to drop its rating a notch to Baa3, with a negative outlook.
The EFF says it will turn to the courts to challenge Gigaba’s decision to grant the Gupta family naturalised citizenship in South Africa.
The party has revealed two official letters from Home Affairs which show the family was first denied citizenship before Gigaba stepped in to give the green light.
