There were some Ministerial dismissals that came as a shock to viewers such as the dismissal of Lindiwe Sisulu and Fikile Mbalula only to mention but a few.
Many people took to twitter to share their views on this Cabinet reshuffle. It seems like public opinion is in agreement that this Cabinet Reshuffle is a sham. The usual culprits we thought would be left unemployed because of their incompetence, found themselves still employed.
Both Ministers Bheki Cele whose public office presides over the Police Department which continues to fail to deal with the rising crime rates and violence against women and children, and Pravin Gordon who is considered to be the culprit behind the collapse of state owned enterprises, remain Ministers today, a development which was not received well by public opinion.
The highlight of the Cabinet reshuffle was the appointment of the occupant of the new Ministerial office in charge of dealing with the load shedding crisis. President Cyril Ramaphosa announced the new office of 'Minister of Electricity' during his SONA Address on the 9th of February. What might be considered one of the most crucial Ministerial offices tasked with combating and resolving the load shedding crisis is to be occupied by Dr Kgosientso Ramokgopa. Time will tell whether this initiative of the President will solve the crisis, or whether it is just another waste of Tax Payers money.
