Cape Town – President Jacob Zuma’s government should explain the rationale for firing Nhlanhla Nene as finance minister, according to former SA president Kgalema Motlanthe.

“All of this has happened so quickly, it leaves you completely stunned as to what to make of it,” Motlanthe told Al Jazeera's Azad Essa on Wednesday.

“The reaction from all quarters is indicative of how dramatic all of this was,” he said. “This is why I am saying it leaves people stunned. It's important to get what the rationale was all about.”
