Who should Ramaphosa give the boot? Presenter Eusebius McKaiser shares his thoughts and invites listeners to do the same.

Who should President Cyril Ramaphosa kick out of his Cabinet this afternoon?

Presenter Eusebius McKaiser says Minister of Women in the Presidency Bathabile Dlamini, Economic Development Minister Ebrahim Patel and Minister of Small Business Development Lindiwe Zulu are some names on his list.

Bathabile Dlamini. Minister of Women in the Presidency. If she is still a minister by 3:15pm, then Ramaphoria is really dead.

Eusebius McKaiser

Can someone tell me whether they would miss the Economic Development Ministry if that department was gone this afternoon? I'm not sure what Ebrahim Patel has done in that position.

What does Minister of Education Angie Motshekga have to show for her longevity? I would say the same for [Energy Minister] Jeff Radebe.. you've got two ministers who've been inside the Cabinet since the last supper! What have they done?

Eusebius McKaiser
