JOHANNESBURG, April 7 (Reuters) - South Africa remains committed to maintaining its expenditure ceiling and stabilising debt, the Treasury said on Friday, after Fitch downgraded the country to sub-investment grade.
Fitch downgraded South Africa's foreign and local currency debt to speculative grade, while S&P Global Ratings on Monday cut the hard currency borrowing to "junk". Both cited likely changes in economic policy after a cabinet reshuffle. (Reporting by Olivia Kumwenda-Mtambo; Editing by James Macharia)
