Mboweni Under Pressure To Reassure Investors

Dondo Mogajane, director general of the South African National Treasury, left, walks with Tito Mboweni, South Africa's finance minister, center, as he heads to parliament to present his mid-term budget in Cape Town, South Africa, on Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018. Mboweni’s appointment as South Africa’s finance minister two weeks ago appeased investors, but his first mid-term budget showed the nation’s debt burden is heavier than they previously thought.
