No 'Nonsensical' Discipline for Gordhan - South African Court

The North Gauteng High Court has granted Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan an interdict, allowing him to avert remedial action recommended by Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane. Mkhwebane had recommended that President Cyril Ramaphosa take disciplinary action against Gordhan after she found him guilty of "improper conduct" for his approval of former South African Revenue Services deputy commissioner Ivan Pillay's early retirement.
