Former finance minister Pravin Gordhan will be sworn in as Public Enterprises Minister on Tuesday.
President Cyril Ramaphosa announced his new Cabinet at the Union Buildings in Pretoria on Monday night.
Gordhan spoke to 702's Karima Brown to share his reaction to the appointment.
The state owned enterprises are a crucial part of our economy, our fiscal system and the extent that they do well is the extent to which they contribute to the development and economic well being of South Africa.— Pravin Gordhan, newly appointed Minister of Public Enterprises
We have seen what all the fault lines are in the public domain already, including rampant corruption so lets get sworn in first, lets not get to far ahead of one's self and we can then chat to you once one has a better grip on some of the issues that one has to deal with.— Pravin Gordhan, newly appointed Minister of Public Enterprises
