Minister Gigaba expected to tackle radical economic transformation at WEF Africa

EWN Stephen Grootes says Durban looks ready for the event and the town is buzzing with dignitaries and blue lights arriving at the venue.

He says the organisers might have been anticipating protests against President Zuma saying the venue has been secured with barb wire.

Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba is expected to speak and address issues of radical economic transformation. Grootes says he is looking forward to hear the finance minister's version of what this phrase means.

I think people are going to be looking at how he looks and acts.
