CAPE TOWN (Reuters) - South Africa’s new Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene has no economic priorities identified yet and wants to familiarize himself with the budget presented last week, he said on Tuesday moments after being sworn-in as a member of parliament.

Asked whether he had any priorities, Nene told Reuters: “I will still have to sit down and familiarize myself with the budget.”
