This comes after former finance minister Nhlanhla Nene decided to resign from the position on Tuesday morning following public outrage sparked by his public apology over his multiple meetings with the Gupta family at their private home.

Ramaphosa made the announcement at a media briefing at his Cape Town office‚ Tuynhuys.

Mboweni also served as labour minister under late President Nelson Mandela before he went on to serve as Reserve Bank governor.
