The ANC has agreed to change the central bank’s mandate to include job creation, so said the African National Congress’s chairman Gwede Mantashe.

Reserve Bank Governor Lesetja Kganyago, responded by saying, “Unemployment in this country is structural… When problems come, people look at the central bank and just say ‘do something,’ even when the central bank wouldn’t have the tools.”
