"These visits do cast a shadow on my conduct as a public office bearer", Nene said in a statement.

"It would have to be carefully handled and equally we can't have uncertainty surrounding the finance minister because that would also have consequences in the market".

President Cyril Ramaphosa should accede to embattled finance minister Nhlanhla Nene's request that he be allowed to step down.

On Friday, Nene apologised for meeting the Guptas at their home and businesses, and for not disclosing the meetings at the time.

The US, meanwhile, has demanded the agency carry out reforms before it restores funding. A Palestinian school in the West Bank.

Nene's future is likely to be decided during a meeting of the ruling African National Congress (ANC) on Monday.

Brown said it was "extremely unfortunate that the finance minister has come under so much pressure as a outcome of his testimony at the Zondo commission".

Themba Maseko tweeted a few days ago that if every single person in Cabinet was to say whether or not they have been to the Gupta family Saxonwold compound, you could feel up FNB stadium.

It is still not known how the president will respond to Nene's request.

In a detailed response to questions from the Sunday Times, Nene said he did not think that the meetings he had had with the Guptas were relevant for the goal his my appointment but "looking back I should have informed the president then, or subsequently".

"We need someone who is a visionary leader, someone who has a very deep understanding of domestic and worldwide financial markets, and how financial systems work in ways to generate high level of financial growth and job creation", he said.

Nene, who was sacked as finance minister by Zuma in December 2015, was reappointed to the position by Ramaphosa in February and has been tasked with turning around an economy that fell into recession in the second quarter.
