Cape Town – South Africa’s new Deputy Minister of Finance Sfiso Buthelezi will most likely have some explaining to do when PublicPprotector Busisiwe Mkhwebana concludes her investigation into the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa). 

Buthelezi, former Prasa chairperson until he was replaced by Popo Molefe in 2014, was appointed to his new position after President Jacob Zuma reshuffled his Cabinet in the early hours of Friday March 31, sacking both Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan (who was replaced by former home affairs minister Malusi Gigaba) and his deputy Mcebisi Jonas.
