New South Africa finance minister Melusi Gigaba calls for radical reform

Finance Ministers compared – Pravin Gordhan vs Malusi GigabaSouth Africa needs to “radically transform” its economy, the country’s new finance minister has said.

The treasury has been seen for too long as belonging to “big business, powerful interests and international investors,” Malusi Gigaba said.

“This is a people’s government,” he told his first news conference since President Jacob Zuma fired his respected predecessor, Pravin Gordhan.

The reaction is uncanny as multiple people begin to fall, quiver and scream even without physically being prayed for by the controversial cleric.

“Demons spontaneously shriek as the anointing sweeps throughout the auditorium and freedom kicks bondage out perpetually, coupled with instant healing for the sick and afflicted,” reads part of the clip’s description on YouTube which runs for over twenty minutes.

Amidst the eerie cries of the possessed, several individuals with difficulties in walking and breathing claimed to receive healing at the touch of the pastor, including a Mexican man who travelled to Nigeria from USA to receive prayer. Read more
