South Africa’s government will take “necessary tough decisions” to stabilise public debt and grow the economy, Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba said on Saturday.

“We will take the necessary tough decisions to continue fiscal consolidation and stabilisation as we move towards the 2018 budget in February,” Gigaba told a breakfast briefing before the start of the ruling African National Congress conference to pick a new party leader.
