Eyewitness News senior politics journalist Tshidi Madia talks about her opinion piece on the country's security cluster.

The country's security cluster has been going back and forth about the violence and looting that happened in Gauteng and KwaZulu- Natal last week.

Eyewitness News senior politics journalist Tshidi Madia speaks to Mandy Wiener about whether South Africa is in the middle of a factional battle of the African National Congress.

Reshuffle conversations have been happening for a really long time. I think he is in a corner, and he is in a room where ministers are openly defying him. There are ministers who have been told to apologise and refused, it's a battle to do basic things.

I think he is forced to do something. His allies are saying get rid of Mapisa-Nqakula, get rid of Ayanda Dlodlo.

Listen to the full interview below:

Criminology expert from Stellenbosch University Dr Guy Lamb says there seems to be a personality breakdown in the security cluster.

It is quite a concerning state of affairs that is unfolding here. We saw the cracks when the violence/insurrection sort of unfolding in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng. From a political point of view, it doesn't seem like we are in a very good state of affairs.
