PARLIAMENT - Pravin Gordhan, who was recently re-appointed as Finance Minister by President Jacob Zuma, tables his Budget in Parliament on Wednesday.
It is expected that one of the key areas the minister will touch on is government’s spending as well as the global economic gloom, the possibility of a sovereign credit downgrade and high inflation.
President Jacob Zuma reinstated Gordhan as Finance Minister after firing Nhlanhla Nene and replacing him with current Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister David van Rooyen, who held the office for three days.
