MT : Gordhan: A week before the Budget speech, an envelope with 27 questions was handed to the Treasury by Ntlemeza. The questions related to the HRIU at SARS from charges filed by Moyane. This was basically a move in an attempt to force me to resign.

MT : Gordhan unsure why he was chosen to replace Nene. “Trevor Manuel, at one time the longest serving finance minister in the world, or Mcebisi Jonas, who was the dep minister & was aware of the happenings in the ministry, could've been recalled.”
