SACBC Comments on Zuma’s Stance on Gordhan

The SACBC is not convinced by President Zuma’s stated position that he cannot intervene in the Gordhan and Hawks saga

The Southern African Catholic Bishop’s Conference (SACBC) says it is not convinced by President Jacob Zuma’s stated position that he cannot intervene in the standoff between Finance Minister, Pravin Gordhan, and the Hawks.

SACBC’s Bishop Abel Gabuza insists that President Zuma can and should do more, adding that, “We ask the president to intervene in the current impasse in a manner that assures the country that the probe against the finance minister is not politically motivated.”

Gabuza‚ who chairs the SACBC’s Justice and Peace Commission, states that: “In the context of the current fragile economy‚ and given the enormous hardships that the poor are already facing in our country‚ it is ethically improper of our political leaders to create uncertainties around the Treasury and diminish the country’s ability to avert a credit-rating downgrade that would hurt the poor.
