“It was not a consultation because he came with a ready-made list. I raised my concern and objection on the removal of the Minister of Finance‚ largely because he was being removed based on an intelligence report that I believe had unsubstantiated allegations about the Minister of Finance and his deputy going to London to mobilise financial markets against our country.

South Africa’s Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa has described the sacking of Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan as “totally unacceptable”.
His late night dismissal on Thursday led to a 5% plunge in the value of the currency, the rand.

Mr Zuma said the midnight reshuffle was about a “radical socio-economic transformation”.
