Financial Mail deputy editor Sikonathi Mantshantsha has commended President Cyril Ramaphosa for dumping former minister of women in the Presidency Bathabile Dlamini and former environmental affairs minister Nomvula Mokonyane.
He says the Cabinet is still bigger than what South Africans were promised but the removal of certain ministers was a much-needed move.
The Buffalo, Cyril Ramphosa, has had to let go of Banxilile Dlamini of Cash Paymaster Services, she who wanted to put in Net1 by crooked means to get them to pay social grants and of course the one who lied to the Constitutional Court is now history.— Sikonathi Mantshantsha, Deputy editor - Financial Mail
Mama Action [Nomvula Mokonyane] is out of government. We now know through Angello Agrizzi that she loves chicken, free chicken in particular.— Sikonathi Mantshantsha, Deputy editor - Financial Mail
Cyril Ramaphosa has cleaned up the Cabinet. There's about 12 of them that were left out including the longest-serving Cabinet minister Jeff Radebe.— Sikonathi Mantshantsha, Deputy editor - Financial Mail
