Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan is remaining mum on whether or not he will be serving as a Cabinet minister following the elections.

While he is certain the ANC will retain power, Gordhan told media during his pre-budget speech briefing that it is a president’s prerogative to choose his Cabinet.

Speculation has been mounting that former minister and former Reserve Bank Governer Tito Mboweni might replace Gordhan as finance minister.

This after Mboweni resigned from a number of boards in recent weeks.

Mboweni has held a number of directorships since leaving the Reserve Bank.
