Finweek English Edition - - In Brief -

Com­men­ta­tors say we might not yet have seen the end of (now) for­mer min­is­ter of home af­fairs, Malusi Gi­gaba, who is seen as a close ally of for­mer pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma. But in the mean­time, ev­ery re­spectable South African de­serves a mo­ment to re­flect on the sig­nif­i­cance of the “Te­flon” min­is­ter’s res­ig­na­tion. He has been re­spon­si­ble for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of visa reg­u­la­tions, widely crit­i­cised as hav­ing dam­aged the tourism sec­tor, which is of huge im­por­tance to the econ­omy; has lied un­der oath; and has been found by the pub­lic pro­tec­tor to have vi­o­lated both the Con­sti­tu­tion and the code of ethics for mem­bers of Par­lia­ment.
