South Africa's president has appointed the experienced Pravin Gordhan as his third finance minister within a week.

He replaces the little-known David van Rooyen who had only been in the job since Thursday.

Last week, President Jacob Zuma sacked previous Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene in a widely-criticised move that sent the rand to record lows and caused the stock market to tumble.

Mr Gordhan was widely respected when he served as South Africa's finance minister from 2009 until 2014.
