Corruption and misrule will soon be history.

South African Reserve Bank Governor Lesetja Kganyago believes the new ANC leadership’s attempts at rooting out corruption and fixing the lacklustre economy may sway ratings agencies to hold off another downgrade.

Optimism that the Jacob Zuma era will soon come to an end – and the appointment of a new board at Eskom - has boosted the rand to a 2.5-year high.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Kganyago, who is attending the 2018 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
