Bathabile Dlamini. Minister of Women in the Presidency. If she is still a minister by 3:15pm, then Ramaphoria is really dead.

Eusebius McKaiser

Can someone tell me whether they would miss the Economic Development Ministry if that department was gone this afternoon? I'm not sure what Ebrahim Patel has done in that position.

What does Minister of Education Angie Motshekga have to show for her longevity? I would say the same for [Energy Minister] Jeff Radebe.. you've got two ministers who've been inside the Cabinet since the last supper! What have they done?

Eusebius McKaiser

Listeners also called in to share their opinions and advice ahead of the Cabinet reshuffle announcement at 3pm.
