President Cyril Ramaphosa has promised punch-drunk South Africans they will welcome his new Cabinet.

Everyone is watching to see if he picks capable ministers, unblemished by scandal.

Ramaphosa has signalled numerous times his intention to trim the size of Cabinet to create a more efficient administration.

We’ll present an outcome that I think the country will welcome and will be pleased with - because it will have a very good balance of gender, youth, competence, demographic [and] regional spread and all that…

President Cyril Ramaphosa

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Lumkile Mondi (Senior Lecturer at School of Economics and Business Science of the University of the Witwatersrand), Ferial Haffajee (Daily Maverick) and Busisiwe Mavuso (COO at Business Leadership SA).

Whitfield asked the following question:

Lumkile Mondi, Senior Lecturer - Wits School of Economics and Business Science

A lot of the negativity coming from Mr Malema… [he and others should] put the interests of the country first…

Lumkile Mondi, Senior Lecturer - Wits School of Economics and Business Science

It’s going to be a Cabinet of mergers and, certainly, a smaller one… We really are an outlier [compared to the world; in terms of the large size of our Cabinet] …

Ferial Haffajee, Daily Maverick

We can’t be a country that is pro-poor and anti-business… 80% of tax revenues come from business… We don’t agree with Julius’ stance…

Busisiwe Mavuso, COO - Business Leadership SA

We were very pleased when we saw people fall by the wayside today…
