Lesetja Kganyago willing to serve a second term as SARB Governor
His first term runs out in November 2019, though he says he's happy to stay on if asked.
Lesetja Kganyago, South African Reserve Bank (SARB) Governor, has said he would be willing to serve another five years at the central bank. Kganyago was appointed into his position by former President Jacob Zuma nearly four years ago.
Kganyago said in an interview with Bloomberg:
“If the appointing authority tells me that somebody else could do the job, it is in the hands of the appointing authority. That is why you are appointed for a fixed term, so that during that term, you know that no one will interfere with you.”
If reappointed, that would extend his stay until 2024, as it is a fixed five-year term.
