Gauteng Premier David Makhura announced his Cabinet for the sixth administration on Wednesday morning.
Makhura on Tuesday postponed the announcement of his Cabinet, saying he needed to consult further with different structures.
A significant move by the premier is moving Panyaza Lesufi from Education to the Finance and e-Government portfolio.
Lesufi is one of only four MECs appointed who were part of Makhura’s previous provincial Cabinet.
To dissect Makhura's announcement, Nickolaus Bauer on the Xolani Gwala Show chats to political analyst professor Somadoda Fikeni.
Lesufi's deployment is the most significant one. We knew that countrywide he is one of the most hardworking MECs. Being senior within the Gauteng African National Congress structures, moving him to a strategic portfolio is one positive acknowledgement to Lesufi.— Professor Somadoda Fikeni, Political analyst
He says there is beginning to be a push for youth in positions of power and he is sure that President Cyril Ramaphosa's Cabinet will also have a strong element of young people.
