ANC concerned courts 'overreaching' in Cabinet reshuffle case

Zuma has been given five days to provide record and reason for the axing of former finance minister Pravin Gordhan and his former deputy Mcebisi Jonas.

The ANC says that the order shows that the judiciary is encroaching on the executive and has urged Zuma to appeal, reports EWN's Barry Bateman.
