Yesterday President Jacob Zuma appointed Lesetja Kganyago as the new governor of the Reserve Bank. This announcement on Monday caused the Rand to strengthen to a session high of R11.2590 to the dollar. Mr Kganyago thanked Zuma for his appointment by saying “I am truly honoured that the leadership of the country found that I will be suitable to execute this mammoth task. I will not disappoint. I don’t have to reinvent anything, I just have to carry on from where (Ms Marcus) left.”
