Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan has reassured South Africans as well as foreign investors that “there is no catastrophe” awaiting South Africa now or in the near future.

Although he didn’t mention the publication by name, Gordhan said the impression was created that “everyone of us is carrying a stick in South Africa and walking down the street with these, just like the perception was 20 years ago that there were giraffes in Sandton.
