"Jacob Zuma doesn't care about ANC and South Africa"

Speculation remains high that President Jacob Zuma is expected to axe Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan and his deputy Mcebisi Jonas after the funeral of struggle stalwart Amhed Kathrada, according to reports.

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader and former African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL), Julius Malema, insists the Cabinet reshuffle is a done deal.

Political analyst, Prince Mashele, says Zuma is under pressure to ensure that he 'benefits himself' by the time he leaves Presidential office.

Mashele says the ANC and South Africans will have to act against the President if he reshuffles Cabinet to benefit himself and the Gupta family.

I don't agree with people who say it's a done deal. I'm sure there are disagreements with the top six and ANC.

Prince Mashele, political analyst

Jacob Zuma doesn't care about ANC and South Africa. You can see that you are dealing with a problematic mind, a mind that doesn't care about consequences.

Prince Mashele, political analyst

The challenge here is for the ANC, and what does it do with a President like that. It's also for us as citizens of the country - what do we do about the President who is acting against our national interest and doesn't care about us.

Prince Mashele, political analyst
