JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Lawyers for South African President Jacob Zuma on Wednesday sought to appeal a High Court order directing him to provide reasons for his decision to fire finance minister Pravin Gordhan in a cabinet reshuffle, eNCA television said.

Gordhan's firing led to sovereign debt downgrades, large street protests and calls for Zuma's resignation.
