Pravin Gordhan, who is fast being turned into public enemy number one, has again warned of the fightback against the clean-up of the state, saying there are people who benefited from corruption and state capture who are trying to “defend their largesse and access to largesse”.

On his first day of testimony at the Zondo commission, the public enterprises minister warned about the dangers of populism and the “politics of distraction so that the spotlight does not fall on you”.
