Makhura 100% behind Finance Minister

Gauteng Premier David Makhura has told Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan that he has the support of the Gauteng government and many others as he faces charges of fraud.

 Yesterday, the Gauteng government hosted a seminar on the open tender system where Gordhan delivered a keynote address.

 But before starting proceedings the Finance Minister told delegates of an unexpected phone call he received informing him of the issuing of a summons for him.

The charges are around his alleged involvement in fraudulently securing an early retirement payment for former South African Revenue Services official Ivan Pillay, whom the National Prosecuting Authority says didn’t qualify for the payout. 

Since news of the charges broke, others including African National Congress chief whip Jackson Mthembu have thrown their weight behind the finance minister.
