‘HANDS OFF PRAVIN!’ – SA Inc.

Let me do my job!

Pravin Gordhan

I am under no legal obligation to present myself to the Hawks. Here’s why…

Pravin Gordhan

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed the following business leaders for their response to the Hawks summons to Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan:

  • Former Group Chief Executive at Alexander Forbes (and friend of Pravin Gordhan) Edward Kieswetter.

  • President at Business Leadership South Africa Saki Macozoma.

Whitfield also played a clip of Pravin Gordhan’s statement.

Scroll down for quotes from the audio clips below.

What is really going on here? The action by the Hawks is surprising and strange.

Edward Kieswetter

I have no doubt that Minister Gordhan is intent on following the law.

Edward Kieswetter

What is the role of the Presidency in this matter?

Edward Kieswetter

Pravin Gordhan is absolutely committed to what the ANC have stood for.

Edward Kieswetter

South Africa cannot afford that the Finance Minister is questioned! We have seen what has happened to the rand! Ordinary South Africans – poor South Africans – will be affected.

Edward Kieswetter

It’s very destructive and certainly undermines all the important work we’ve been doing.

Saki Macozoma

We have barely eight weeks before we sit for our next examination!

Saki Macozoma

We need all South Africans facing in the same direction. It’s sad. I guess we just have to keep on keeping on. This is pushing us very close to hopelessness.

Saki Macozoma

Our country stands, once more, at the edge of the abyss... We can’t be playing games with this portfolio!
