South Africans continue to wait for the much anticipated cabinet reshuffle by President Ramaphosa.
The ANC NEC held a meeting over the weekend and appointed its members to be conveners of provincial structures.
It is reported that ANC deputy president David Mabuza has made himself available for the Deputy president position. Speaking to Ray White on the Midday Report, Munusamy says its interesting that there is a hard push from David Mabuza and Mpumalanga to have him as deputy president.
The deputy president position is the sole prerogative of the president of the country. David Mabuza cannot be sent by the ANC or send himself to this position.— Renjani Munusamy, Associate Editor Tiso Black Star
Munusamy says President Ramaphosa might not go with two deputy presidents because he said he wants to cut the the number of cabinet. She says the deputy presidents would need special housing and transport and that would come out of the tax payers pockets.
The deputy president doesn't have a defined function. The President gives them special projects to do, in this case we don't even know what one deputy president would be doing in the next 18 months.— Renjani Munusamy, Associate Editor Tiso Black Star
