An energy expert says minister Gordhan should have been fired long ago

# Public Enterprises minister Pravin Gordhan should have been fired or stepped down long ago as all the state-owned entities under his watch are failing. This is according to energy expert Mthunzi Luthuli. His comments echo that of the DA, which said that in the past five years, Gordhan has triggered unprecedented governance chaos at executive and board levels in SOEs. Luthuli says Gordhan keeps giving excuses for the poor performances of SOES including state capture and geopolitical forces, however, what is clear is that he has been an ineffective minister.
