Pretoria - President Jacob Zuma axed Communications Minister Dina Pule on Tuesday, replacing her with former Co-operative Government and Traditional Affairs Deputy Minister Yunis Carriem.

Announcing his reshuffled Cabinet in Pretoria, Zuma made several other changes in the executive.

ENCA quoted Zuma as saying: "Twenty years of democracy have changed the face of our country. And the last five years have pushed that change forward." Adding that, "The achievements are due to the hard work of many of our [public figures].”

Connie September would take over the portfolio of Human Settlements from Tokyo Sexwale, and Transport Minister Ben Martins swopped porfolios with Energy Minister Dipuo Peters.

Deputy Land Reform Minister Lechesa Tsenoli would take over from Richard Baloyi as Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister, Zuma said.

It is the fourth time that Zuma has changed his Cabinet.

The new Cabinet will be sworn in on Wednesday.

The new ministers and deputy ministers are as follows:

1     Minister of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Lechesa Tsenoli

2     Minister of Human Settlements Connie September

3     Minister of Communications Yunus Carrim

4     Minister of Energy Ben Martins

5     Minister of Transport Dipuo Peters

6     Deputy Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development John Jeffery

7     Deputy Minister of Science and Technology Michael Masutha

8     Deputy Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Andries Nel

9     Deputy Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform Pamela Tshwete
