Dawie Roodt says he is totally speechless, following President Jacob Zuma’s
announcement of removing Nhlanhla Nene as Minister of Finance. In a statement
Zuma says Nene had done well since his appointment to the position during a
difficult economic climate. Nene has been replaced by David Van Rooyen. Roodt
says Zuma chose the worst timing…
Roodt says …“Is difficult to say why the person did it, the strange thing is,
on the beginning really consulted quiet broadly when he made decisions. But I get
the impressions that the last time he thinks, only doing it on his own”.
did not consult anybody cabinet, his partner. He did not consult Luthuli House
and nobody the new Minister of mineral affairs. It was a total stranger from
outside from the Free State, bringing in from the outside”.
time again it is somebody unknown coming in from the outside, normally as Mr
Nene was 1st the deputy Minister. Then he became the Minister
because he practises the position”.
“So I get the impression he is being isolated
as President, he does not want anybody to talk back to him, those that did he
get rid of you know? Tokyo Sexwale is gone….Paul Mashatile is gone”
