Mokonyane, Dlamini should be shuf­fled out

Sunday Tribune - - OPINION -

SOUTH Africa waited for Pres­i­dent Cyril Ramaphosa to reshuf­fle his Cab­i­net, and we also ex­pected him to re­move two strong sup­port­ers of for­mer pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma: Nomvula Mokonyane and Batha­bile Dlamini.

Mokonyane screamed and shouted at the top of her voice, singing praises to Zuma – words that in­cluded that “Zuma is the ANC, our fa­ther, and no one can re­move him”. All this was tele­vised.

Mokonyane be­haved in a very undig­ni­fied man­ner. What is she do­ing in Ramaphosa’s Cab­i­net?

She and Dlamini must be re­moved in or­der to es­tab­lish good gov­er­nance. Ramaphosa must make a clean sweep of his Cab­i­net.

He should have re­moved all Zuma’s dead­wood. Ramaphosa has dis­ap­pointed South Africans across the spec­trum by keep­ing Dlamini and Mokonyane in his Cab­i­net – they are Ramaphosa’s en­e­mies and those of the peo­ple.

They are ar­ro­gant min­is­ters. They are not in gov­ern­ment on merit.

South Africa does not need such min­is­ters.
