Johannesburg - The Constitutional Court has dismissed President Cyril Ramaphosa's appeal against the Gauteng High Court order which compelled former president Jacob Zuma to provide reasons for dismissing his ministers and deputy ministers from Cabinet.
The case emanates from Zuma's controversial 2017 firing of former finance minister Pravin Gordhan and his deputy Mcebisi Jonas.
The DA had launched a review application with the North Gauteng High Court in a bid to force Zuma to reverse his decision, and also provide reasons why he fired them.
When Zuma refused, the DA successfully applied for an interlocutory order to compel him to provide the record of the proceedings relating to the duo's dismissals, which he then took on appeal to the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA).
An interlocutory order is a temporary order which is usually issued during the course of litigation.
