Zuma's cabinet reshuffle 'throws Zwane in the deep end'

Executive chairperson of Mmakau Mining, Bridgette Radebe, says the appointment of new Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane is of great concern for the industry.

Radebe, speaking to 702's Xolani Gwala today, said there was concern as the previous minister, Ngoako Ramatlhodi, could have been removed because of conflict of interest as he owns shares in companies that are part of a chamber that is taking the ministry to court.

The cabinet reshuffle also sparked outrage in the mining industry, with claims that the new minister is facing an uphill battle.

Meanwhile, Ramatlhodi's spokesperson, Advocate Mahlodi Muofhe, said Ramatlhodi had never bought shares in any mining company.

Zwane was officially sworn in today at the Union Buildings in Pretoria.
