South Africa's Zuma also fired me for rejecting new route for state airline: finance minister

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South African finance minister said on Wednesday his decision to reject a new route for the state airline to Sudan contributed to his sacking in 2015.

Nene, who was giving testimony at a judicial inquiry into influence-peddling, said earlier the main reason he was fired by former President Jacob Zuma was for rejecting a plan to build a fleet of nuclear power plants.
