Ramaphosa Cabinet reshuffle

Political analyst Prince Mashele says President Ramaphosa should take this opportunity to remove the rotten apples from Cabinet.

President Cyril Ramaphosa is set to announce a reshuffle to Cabinet on Thursday afternoon following the resignation of Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba and the passing of Minister of Environmental Affairs, Edna Molewa.

Political analyst Prince Mashele says if the President does not take this opportunity to remove Bathabile Dlamini and Nomvula Mokonyane from his cabinet, he will be sending a message that he doesn't have control over the ANC.

Mashele says if he fails to remove these two he will also be sending a message to society that all the talk about a new dawn was nothing but hot air.

It will be a missed opportunity if he was to fill only the two vacant positions because there are glaring failures in his cabinet. There are rotten apples in his Cabinet such as Nomvula Mokonyane and Bathabile Dlamini. He has to remove those two, at least.

Prince Mashele, Political analyst

Mashele says it would be wise for Ramaphosa to dismantle the Zuma component of the ANC leadership because he says it is weak.

The best thing to do for Cyril Ramaphosa is to attack that component and dismantle it. By keeping Bathibile Dlamini in Cabinet you are actually maintaining its strength which in my opinion is baseless.

Prince Mashele, Political analyst

The Zuma component of the leadership of the ANC as we all know it's a rotten component. Society wants to see that rot out and if you don't get rid of that rot, you are undermining your own credibility as Cyril Ramaphosa.

Prince Mashele, Political analyst

They can run to court, it's fine but society will be on your side and when society is on your side you have a firmer protection than keeping them in your cycles.

Prince Mashele, Political analyst
