Here is what we know about Deputy Finance Minister Sfiso Buthelezi

Buthelezi is highly educated, holding a master’s and BCom degree.

He has been a member of the ANC for over 30 years and served as the chairperson of the Prasa board before Popo Molefe took over.

According to his biography online, Sfiso Buthelezi was a chief operations officer for Makana Investment Corporation Limited, from which he resigned to join parliament. He was also a director for Makana Investments Corporation Limited as well as a chairman for Sihayo Investments Limited and a director for Kaya FM.

“Since I was 20, my life has been in the ANC one way or the other. I am 55 now. For 35 years I have been with the ANC, either in exile, in the bush, in jail, or working with politicians. I was just curious when I heard the word ‘novice’,” he  told City Press.

He is an economist who holds master’s, honourary and BCom degrees in economics.
