South African President Jacob Zuma said on Tuesday that fraud charges against Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan were a concern for "all of us" and that he had never discussed the case with the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).

Zuma was responding to questions in the upper house of parliament about the charges against Gordhan, which analysts and the finance minister's supporters have said appear to be a ploy to remove him from office.

The NPA has said the charges are not politically motivated.
