Moody's pushes back South Africa credit rating decision

JOHANNESBURG, April 4 (Reuters) - Moody’s said on Tuesday it will not issue a sovereign credit rating decision on South Africa this Friday, as previously planned, but will do so after a review that could take 30 to 90 days.

Moody’s announced on Monday that it had placed South Africa on a review for a downgrade after a cabinet reshuffle that saw a respected former finance minister dismissed from his post.

Moody’s currently has South Africa’s sovereign at two notches above non-investment grade at Baa2. (Reporting by James Macharia; Editing by Joe Brock)
