Jacob Zuma’s plan for term 2

2014-05-11 06:00

The National Development Plan (NDP) will take centre stage when President Jacob Zuma begins his second term as head of state later this month.

After securing a 62.15% victory in the elections, the ANC will focus on closing the loopholes in delivery issues that might be exploited by the Economic Freedom Fighters and the soon-to-be-formed socialist party that is being championed by the National Union of Metalworkers of SA.

There will be no major changes to government structures because the ANC feels it cannot afford any more experimentation and that ministers should just move on to implementing policies.

Some of the changes could include:

» Merging the land and agriculture departments.

» Starting a government department for small business.

» Starting a health council to tackle lifestyle diseases.

» Merging sports and recreation with arts and culture.

» Merging the department of women, children and people with disabilities with that of social development.
