He’s a tough negotiator but, once he has agreed, you know you have a deal.

Frans Baleni, Development Bank of Southern Africa

President Cyril Ramaphosa has sacked Mosebenzi Zwane as Minister of Mineral Resources, appointing Gwede Mantashe in his place.

Ramaphosa made it clear that drafting a new version of the much maligned Mining Charter is Minister Mantashe’s first task.

The Chamber of Mines has described the new minister as “a man of integrity and dignity”.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Frans Baleni, Chair of the Jobs Fund at Development Bank of Southern Africa.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for more quotes from it).

You could’ve replaced Mosebenzi Zwane with an empty chair and you’d be better off!

Bruce Whitfield

It’s a good choice.

That department was captured!
