Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba appeared at Parliament’s standing committee on finance for the first time on Tuesday where MPs grilled him on radical economic transformation.
Whatever the name you call it – accelerated growth, radical economic transformation or inclusive growth - we want to address the plight of these [left-behind] people.— Malusi Gigaba, Finance Minister

Carrim also urged Gigaba to urgently address transformation in the financial sector, the issue of rotation of auditors and the vacancies at South African Airways.
