“With respect to Ministers, I have decided to make the following changes,” he said.
“Pending the completion of their swearing-in as Members of the National Assembly, I intend to further appoint:”
“The positions of Deputy Minister of Public Enterprises and Deputy Minister in the Presidency for Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation will remain vacant,” he said.The following changes were made:
"No one, with the best interests of South Africa today, could have Malusi Gigaba, Nomvula Mokonyane [and] Bathabile Dlamini as Cabinet members and ministers."Indeed, the biggest disappointment of all is that Malusi Gigaba still has a job. Somehow, the three names mentioned by the EFF continue to evade the chopping block, and it's a small miracle that Gigaba in particular isn't in jail. To have returned Gigaba to his old post as Minister of Home Affairs seems nonsensical. Opposition parties have accused him of lying under oath in a court of law and have said that to retain him as a minister would be a direct rejection of the Constitution.
"Above all is Gigaba, whose state capture crimes come close to treason as he facilitated the handing over of state institutions to foreign nationals in the form of the Guptas," said Ndlozi.Keeping Gigaba around isn't the worst news though, and neither is the fact that Nomvula Mokonyane, Bathabile Dlamini and Maite Nkoana-Mashaban continue to linger like bad odours. These are all disastrous in their own right, but the biggest problem the South African people face right now is the soon-to-be-appointed David Mabuza as Deputy President. The scandal-ridden Mabuza has been called a thug, is hopelessly unfit to be the Deputy President of the Republic and nobody will ever be able to justify this appointment. He is an architect of state capture, guilty of blatant corruption, violent thuggery and has even been accused of murder. It is rumoured that he has his own personal 'military' which has allegedly been responsible for numerous political killings in Mpumalanga. The man could be a serious threat to the political stability of South Africa.
