SACP and Ahmed Kathrada Foundation throw their weight behind Gordhan
The South African Communist Party (SACP) and the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation say Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan must be protected, insisting that he is leading the campaign to clean up state-owned enterprises.
The organisations held a joint media briefing on Thursday to raise concerns over what they say is an attack on certain ministers and whistle-blowers.
