Minister Pravin Gordan is probably one of the most hated politicians on South Africa, mostly by the members of the Economic Freedom Fighters. They have accused him of amongst other things racism and corruption, they have blamed him for all the wrong and load shedding happing at Eskom. Gordan has always ignored him and went his usual daily life.
Today, the country saw a much different Gordan, a hurt and vulnerable man, an opposite of who he is in real life. This is because of what hewas going through.
I have lost a friend, mentor and guide, says Pravin Gordhan in tribute to Struggle stalwart Swami Gounden
Durban - South African Minister of Public Enterprises Pravin Gordhan said yesterday the late Swaminathan “Swami” Karuppa Gounden was a friend, mentor and guide to him throughout his activist years during the Struggle.
Gordhan, who was delivering a virtual tribute during the late stalwart’s funeral at the Clare Estate Crematorium in Durban, said Gounden left behind footprints that few would recognise.
