Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba says it is unfortunate that the nation's attention is focused on "spurious" sideshows when the country is facing massive economic challenges.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Rand Daily Mail Editor Ray Hartley.

Hartley spoke about why the “sideshows” matter, bigtime.

Whitfield also spoke to CEO Initiative member Jabu Mabuza, who met with the minister.
