Johannesburg - It was crucial to reshuffle the Cabinet to ensure effective service delivery, the ANC said on Sunday.

"Having done a serious introspection through continuous monitoring and evaluation of performance of all ANC cadres deployed to Cabinet, the need to reshuffle Cabinet to ensure effective service delivery became crucial," spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said.

Mthembu congratulated the newly-appointed ministers. "We would also like to pay tribute to outgoing ministers who have served the ANC-led government well, confident that they will continue to make a meaningful contribution in areas where they will be redeployed."

The ANC said the way government worked had to change in order to improve service delivery.

"The reshuffle is also in line with the recent ANC National General Council to put the interests of the people first, confident that the changes at Cabinet level will go a long way to make government stronger."

The reshuffle saw seven ministers being axed and 14 deputy ministers being appointed.

The new team will be sworn into office on Monday at 14:00.
