Finance Minister Asked President Ramaphosa to Fire Him - Report

South African Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene has allegedly asked President Cyril Ramaphosa to relieve him of his duties, News24 reports. This comes after Nene offered testimony on state capture at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry where he confirmed visiting the Gupta family on numerous occasions between 2009 and 2014. Nene was previously dismissed from the post in 2015 when then-president Jacob Zuma fired him in a meeting "that lasted less than three minutes".
