Cape Town – Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan is currently reading a book about how people in power can easily become too confident and arrogant and then come to a fall.
That was his answer to the opening question by political analyst Justice Malala at a discussion session at the Open Book Festival in Cape Town on Thursday.
Gordhan added that over the last 104 years the ANC has gone through many things and, therefore the last 20 years should be seen in that context.
"Like any organisation you have to confront reality from time to time. The local elections showed we were not quite in tune with what citizens want. We have to look in the mirror. The public told us as the ANC what they like and what not, and what they like us to change if the ANC wants their vote in future," said Gordhan.
