Shiceka, Mahlangu-Nkabinde fired as ministers
Pretoria - President Jacob Zuma on Monday replaced two Cabinet ministers implicated in corruption and announced a major reshuffle of his executive team.
Zuma told reporters that Sicelo Shiceka had been replaced as co-operative governance minister and Gwen Mahlangu-Nkabinde had been replaced as public works minister.
Shiceka was suspected of spending R600 000 on un-sanctioned luxury travel including overseas visits to a girlfriend imprisoned in Switzerland for drug smuggling.
Mahlangu-Nkabinde was accused by the public protector of wrongdoing for her role in a lease deal involving a Pretoria building for police headquarters.
Police commissioner General Bheki Cele was also suspended with full pay. General Nhlanhla Mkwanazi has been appointed acting commissioner.
