Manto Tshabalala-Msimang

In the news: Health problems, departmental squabbles, accusations of alcoholism

The past 12 months have not been kind to the minister of health. In March Tshabalala-Msimang underwent an elective liver transplant. Her deputy, Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge, was fired by President Mbeki in July for "unsubordination".

The most damaging episode occurred when her suitability for the job was publicly questioned when revelations were made in the Sunday Times about her alleged alcoholism and criminal record.
