Staying Put: Sexwale and Mbalula

2012-06-13 00:00

Police chiefs were expected to account to Chikunga’s committee about the matter this week, but it’s unclear if the meeting will go ahead now.

Deputy chief whip Bulelani Gratitude Magwanishe was appointed deputy Public Enterprises minister.

Despite repeated rumours that Human Settlements minister Tokyo Sexwale would be axed because of his campaigning to replace Zuma at the party’s elective conference in Mangaung in December, he stayed put again, as did Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula, who is also said to oppose Zuma’s leadership.

There were similar rumours that Rural Development minister Gugile Nkwinti would be axed for his lack of loyalty, but he too stayed put.

Three vacancies were created by the death of Padayachie, including the resignation of Enoch Godongwana (Economic Development) and the move of Henrietta Bogopane-Zulu from Public Works to the ministry of Women, Children and People with Disabilities last year.
