Following Thursday’s North Gauteng High Court ruling that President Jacob Zuma must provide reasons for firing Pravin Gordhan as finance minister, Gordhan answered “no” to News24‘s question of whether he would return to the post if Zuma’s decision was found to be unjustifiable.
Gordhan reportedly told News24 that he was “not chasing any jobs” and said he was sure there would be “further steps in the process” and opted to take a “wait and see” approach, saying the courts should be left to “do their job”.
Gordhan reportedly commented to News24 on the sidelines of the screening of “Promises and Lies: The ANC, Exile and the Project of Freedom”, a local documentary, held at Constitution Hill.
EWN further reported that on stage, Gordhan delivered a keynote address in which he highlighted aspects of political instability but reportedly said he hoped things would change, and inspired others to remain hopeful too.
He further reportedly said that truths had to be confronted and questions had to be asked on how to deal with them.
