We cannot throw money in a deep, black hole… we think it [SAA’s turnaround strategy] will start bearing fruits…— Dondo Mogajane, National Treasury
I’m not captured! We’re not captured at National Treasury!— Dondo Mogajane, National Treasury
The City Press is reporting that Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba is annulling the power of senior National Treasury, including Director General Dondo Mogajane.
National Treasury has refuted the claims.
The paper also claims that the minister has stopped consulting Mogajane and other officials in key decisions, but speaks to political advisor Thamsanqa Msomi - who reportedly has close relations with the Gupta family – first.
