JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – South Africa’s rand and government bonds started the week on the back foot as political uncertainty weighed on sentiment after last week’s cabinet reshuffle that saw changes at the Treasury. Just after 11am CAT the rand was 1.63 per cent weaker to the dollar at 13.64. From 27 March when then Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan was recalled from an overseas investor trip until today it is 10.8 per cent weaker.
