The last time Honorable Mr. President, Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma reshuffled his cabinet, he fired the previous Finance Minister, Pravin Gordhan and other members of the cabinet. It is believed that the guys Zuma axed where disloyal to his looting agenda. Now, it has circulated that the President is getting set to carry out another cabinet reshuffle.
It is said the coming cabinet reshuffle will enable Mr. Zuma remove disloyal ANC and SACP members of his cabinet.
“It is no secret that Zuma is seeking to re-assert his influence over the ANC caucus at Parliament after dozens of his MPs voted in support of the 8 August Motion of No Confidence in him. “The decision to send Dlamini-Zuma to Parliament also seems to precipitate yet another Cabinet reshuffle. “Those members of Zuma’s Cabinet who were outspoken in the run-up to the vote, and those who belong to the rebellious SACP are certain to be in the firing line.” DA warned that the deployment of Zuma’s ex-wife deployment will cripple Parliament.
To the party, the ruling party’s decision to deploy President Zuma’s preferred successor to Parliament won’t bode well for the effective functioning of the Legislature. “Zuma seems unconcerned about the effect this move will have on Parliament where ANC infighting is already undermining parliamentary work. “(We see) Dlamini-Zuma for what she is – … a strong supporter and close family to Jacob Zuma.
(She) will only protect the president and his allies while deliberately ignoring the interests of South Africa and its people. “Her interests only lie on protecting the corrupt and failed legacy of Jacob Zuma, the Guptas and the ANC,” stated DA. Meanwhile, Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has already been sworn in as an ANC MP. She and North West politician Matthew Wolmarans were sworn in today.

They haven’t told me anything about that. So, as far as I’m concerned, I’m coming as a Member of Parliament. I’ve been sworn in, that’s all I know,” she added.
