Zuma set to announce cabinet

Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma is set to announce his cabinet this morning and is reportedly planning a major shakeup of his security cluster.

According to the Sunday Independent, this move could spell the end for two of the cabinet’s most controversial figures – State Security Minister Siyabonga Cwele and Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa.

It was reported that Zuma might also appoint the country’s first black African head of the Treasury by promoting deputy finance minister Nhlanhla Nene to the position.

Meanwhile, Justice Minister Jeff Radebe is expected to move to the Presidency to replace Collins Chabane.

Zuma is also expected to announce a new ministry for small and medium enterprises.

However, the most dramatic playout has been over the finance portfolio with strong lobbying taking place for current minister Pravin Gordhan and for Nene.

According to the newspaper, a senior source inside the Treasury said Gordhan had a good chance of retaining his position but acknowledged there had been strong lobbying for a black African Finance Minister.
