In a HARDtalk interview broadcast on 30 September, Stephen Sackur talks to South Africa's Finance Minister, Trevor Manuel.

In the past week South Africa has been rocked by political turmoil.

First Thabo Mbeki stepped down as president after pressure from his rivals in his party, the long ruling African National Congress.

Then eleven ministers resigned from their posts in government.

Finance Minister Trevor Manuel was one of this group, although he has since been re-appointed to the new cabinet.

Stephen Sackur asks him about the rumours of splits in the ANC and if the infighting will drag the country into further chaos.

HARDtalk is broadcast on BBC World News at 03:30 GMT, 08:30 GMT, 14:30 GMT, 20:30 GMT and 22:30 GMT

HARDtalk can also be seen on BBC News at 04:30 BST & 23:30 BST
