Is the ANC in for a shocker in next year’s polls?
By Akpo Ometan
Ahead of planned cabinet reshuffle expected to take place Thursday, South Africans have told their president that they are not impressed.
In a series of tweets on the subject, the citizens of the rainbow nation who go to the polls in a few months time, are reminding Presient Cyril Ramaphosa that he was supported by them to replace doddering President Jacob Zuma who was ousted several months ago but that they are yet to feel his impact positively in the affairs of the nation.
Here are some samples:
Rupert has called for a
#CabinetReshuffle at 3pm and we know which Ministers the Stellenbosch boys wants out… Its gonna go down…let Cyril mess up…don’t stop him! He is pleasing his bosses
Thank you for announcing the National Executive
#CabinetReshuffle at Union Buildings while the sun is still shining and not the usual midnight shuffle.
Still remember this, how the media made it a big deal whenever Zuma reshuffled his cabinet? Cyril Ramaphosa is on his 3rd
#CabinetReshuffle and he hasn’t even been elected as president. Now you know that cabinet reshuffling is not ONLY a Zuma thing.
In my opinion this
#CabinetReshuffle is Ramaphosa’s chance to clean out the Union Buildings and get rid of a few rotten ministers such as Bathabile Dlamini, Nomvula Mokonyane and others. Let’s wait and see what happens.
The changes are coming on the heels of the untimely death of the Minister of Environmental Affairs, Edna Molewa and the resignation of Home Affairs Minister, Malusi Gigaba.
