Cabinet could be reduced by as many as nine departments and 15 deputy ministries


Cabinet could be reduced by as many as nine departments and 15 deputy ministries

Various unverified lists are being circulated, with Ramaphosa under pressure to omit controversial ministers including Bathabile Dlamini and Nomvula Mokonyane.

Senzo Mchunu could go to the department of state security, that will in all likelihood be renamed the department of intelligence.

The Department of Economic Development could also fall away and return under the auspices of the Department of Trade and Industry, where it used to be located as a directorate.

The appointment of Cabinet is the prerogative of the president, but he will only do so after consultation with the ANC's leadership and discussions with the party's alliance partners, the SACP, Cosatu and Sanco.

"The most important aspect for the SACP is that the Cabinet must be credible and, ideally, be accepted even outside of the ANC and alliance. We must have ministers who are competent and credible," he said.

In addition to the reduction of departments and ministries from 34 to 25, as many as 15 deputy ministries could also be culled from government's bloated payroll, according to discussions in certain ANC quarters.

This will never happen as long as the ANC still rewards the whole lot 'freedom fighters'. The only way to reward them is to give them ministerial positions. I'll believe it when I see it.
