#Davos: Zuma’s finance minister reshuffle raises eyebrows
SA Reserve Bank Governor Lesetja Kganyago however says it hasn't deterred investors.
DAVOS - South African Reserve Bank Governor Lesetja Kganyago says while the reshuffling of the country's finance ministers late last year has raised some eyebrows at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, it hasn't deterred investors.
Kganyago is part of South Africa's delegation to the Davos summit, which comprises seven government ministers and several business heavyweights.
Kganyago admits questions were asked by potential investors about Zuma's decisions.
"They did raise the question of, 'you do not change finance ministers at that rate as it becomes a source of uncertainty', and then we said that we understand that."
But he says they were comforted by Gordhan's reinstatement.
"The president did come out and said he'd heard a lot of representations. He has heard South Africans who had spoken to him and he decided he's bringing back Gordhan, who brought stability back to the Treasury."

Kganyago says South Africa's announcement to keep spending under tight control also soothed foreign investor confidence.
