Gordhan: Treasury is dealing with SAA board, nuclear deal matters
Pravin Gordhan says these big issues confronting Treasury are not being ignored.
Gordhan has said that SAA will have a new board amid speculation that President Jacob Zuma is refusing to allow him to fire Dudu Myeni as SAA chair.
Myeni is also the chair of the Jacob Zuma Foundation.
Gordhan was speaking at the Daily Maverick gathering yesterday in Midrand.
He says the big issues confronting the Treasury, like SAA and the nuclear deal, are not being ignored.
"The only assurance I can give you, is that none of these issues are off the hot plate, they are [being] cooked up in one way or another."
The finance minister says that people who deliberately damage property during protests must be dealt with.
"We need a louder and various voice of various types of authority to be expressed in a very clear way that this is not how we want to run South Africa and that there are other ways of solving problems."
Gordhan also says the support he's received from the public, is hugely important to him.
