Cape Town – While Save SA realises it is the prerogative of President Jacob Zuma, firing Pravin Gordhan as finance minister would be foolhardy, it warned on Monday.

“There is nothing anyone can do if Gordhan is fired as it is part of the president’s prerogative,” Save SA steering committee member Lawson Naidoo told Fin24.

“However, one would hope he understands that he has a minister of finance that has the trust of the global investment community,” he said. “It would be foolhardy to make changes at this level at this time.”
