Sisulu is best known for his part in the ANC Youth League task team in 2013 after the organisation’s structures were disbanded.

Zuma on Wednesday shocked the nation when he recalled Nhlanhla Nene as Minister of Finance. The move saw the rand plummet with economists and political analysts saying domestic and foreign investment had been compromised.
