Zuma could execute cabinet reshuffle to secure comfortable retirement - analyst

A cabinet reshuffle is not so far-fetched, according to political analyst David Maimela.

It's reported that President Jacob Zuma has considered appointing Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to his cabinet once she steps down as chair of the African Union (AU).

Maimela says Zuma would want to "strengthen his hand" over the political process leading up to his retirement.

I do think that there might be a cabinet reshuffle.

He advises that the President reaching the end of his term both in the ANC and government, and may want to secure his future.

The incumbent will always have political interest in who succeeds him and therefore take steps to shape the process of succession.
