South African President Jacob Zuma ordered Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan to return from an investor roadshow to Britain and the United States immediately without giving any reason.

The presidency issued a statement in that regard confirming earlier media reports.

“President Jacob Zuma has instructed the Minister of Finance Mr Pravin Gordhan and Deputy Minister Mcebisi Jonas to cancel the international investment promotion roadshow to the UK and the US and return to South Africa immediately,” the statement said.

A government source is quoted by Reuters on Monday saying the summon is because the president “did not give permission for the trip.”

“They were told last night or this morning to come back,” the source, who had no more details, said.
