The governor for Yei River State in South Sudan, Frank Matata, has been suspended for alleged illegal trading in timber.

By Hassan Isilow

JOHANNESBURG

South Africa’s Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene claimed on Wednesday that he was fired by former President Jacob Zuma in 2015, because he refused to agree to a nuclear deal with Russia.
