South Africa’s Treasury head of budget resigns

Johannesburg –   ’s Treasury on Monday
 confirmed that Deputy Director- General Michael Sachs, a senior official in charge of the budget office, had quit the department.

ensure a proper handover to another senior official,” Treasury said in a statement.
