EWN’s Dr Jack & Curtis take a look at Malusi Gigaba’s recent public snub of economic advisor Chris Malikane on the eve of his US investor roadshow.
Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba said he will reassure investors that South Africa remains a good destination for investment despite being downgraded to junk status by two international rating agencies.
Gigaba was addressing the media in Pretoria on Wednesday morning ahead of a trip to attend meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank in the United States. In answering questions about his advisor Malikane’s nationalisation comments, Gigaba said he told him to “keep quiet”.
