Johannesburg – President Jacob Zuma's decision to recall former Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan from an investor roadshow was a “kick in the teeth” for business and labour representatives who accompanied him, according to businessman and leader of the Save South Africa campaign Sipho Pityana.

Speaking to Fin24 after addressing the Wits Business School on Wednesday, Pityana said: “He was not just kicking the minister of finance in the teeth, he was kicking business and labour in the teeth as well because all that we were doing there was to support government in leading a delegation,” he said.

The different stakeholders are encouraged to put their “best foot forward”  in explaining the governance framework in the country.
