Thanks to Finance Minister, Gordhan

2016-11-01 06:00

IT seldom happens, within the context of a country, that so much depends on one man.

South Africa finds itself at such a point in its history and you, Finance­ Minister Pravin Gordhan, are that man.

Minister, thank you for the position you have taken up to form a stronghold against the forces that have no regard for the interests of South Africa.

They are hell-bent on not only destroying your reputation, but removing you from office, with the clear intention to have unhindered access to the country’s resources.

In fulfilling this heroic role, your personal sacrifice, and that of your family, is sincerely recognised­ and deeply appreciated.

We also wish to express, through you minister, our sincere appreciation to your loyal staff who, during these difficult times, have stood by you.

As a matter of interest, minister, before submitting this letter, we ran the issue of support for you past our circle of influence.

Within a couple of days, over 15 000 businesses and individuals had expressed support for you.

Minister, we support you and will do whatever is within our means to hold your hands up high.


Chief executive of the
National Employers’
Association of South Africa
