The ANC decided at its conference in December to nationalise the Reserve Bank. Now the party says it’s ready to begin discussions on how this will happen. Magashule says they are looking at the modalities of how to implement the resolution.
“The resolution of the conference has to be implemented. It has to be implemented with sensitivity in consultations and engagements.”
Magashule says they will be cautious and will consult widely before taking a decision on the way forward.
The party has not attached timelines to this process and are opting to consult broadly on the matter.
