President Cyril Ramaphosa’s decision on finance minister Nhlanhla Nene’s future will be announced at 4.30pm‚ the Presidency said on Tuesday afternoon.

In a statement‚ Ramaphosa’s spokeswoman Khusela Diko said that a “public statement” would be made “on developments emanating from the recent testimony of Minister of Finance Mr Nhlanhla Nene before the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture”.

Ramaphosa would brief the media on the decision at Tuynhuys at 4.30pm‚ Diko said.
