Where are the leaders in the ANC?

The decision to remove Nhlanhla Nene and appoint David van Rooyen as finance minister sent the country in shockwaves. The recent decision to remove van Rooyen and have Pravin Gordhan in the finance portfolio has restored some faith in the markets.

702 and Cape Talk listeners on The Redi Tlhabi Show share their thoughts on the events that have shocked the country over a 72-hour period.

Listen to the conversation below:

To remove pravin Gordhan from local government is another blow. There is a lot of corruption happening down there.

Marcel, caller from Durban

This is not a South African problem, it's an African problem...They think because they are the liberation movement then they can hold us at ransom and we owe them something.

Vusi, caller from Joburg

In the clip below, 11-year-old Mulanga from Midrand shares his thoughts on the saga.

Listen to the interview below:

What President Zuma is doing is a joke. I don't know what is going to happen with my future now...What he's doing is playing around.
