WATCH: SA public weigh in on #CabinetReshuffle

2018-02-27 15:03

After two weeks in office, newly-appointed President Cyril Ramaphosa announced his new Cabinet on Monday evening. The reshuffle was met with mixed reaction from members of the opposition, and even those within the ANC. Here's what the public had to say. Watch. WATCH

Johannesburg - Former police minister Fikile Mbalula is the latest ANC Member of Parliament to step down.

Last week, former minister of public enterprises Lynne Browne resigned. This followed a late-night Cabinet reshuffle announcement from President Cyril Ramaphosa which resulted in the two - along with several others - being booted out of the national executive.

Mbalula has since taken up a full-time post at the ANC's headquarters as chair of the party's subcommittee on elections. He has started getting the governing party ready for the 2019 general elections by holding an election workshop last week.

"The office of the ANC chief whip confirms that former minister of police, comrade Fikile Mbalula tendered his resignation as an ANC Member of Parliament in the National Assembly," Jackson Mthembu's spokesperson Nonceba Mhlauli said in a statement.

Mhlauli added that Mbalula tendered his resignation on February 26.

"While comrade Mbalula's departure from Parliament will leave a void, we derive satisfaction from the knowledge that he will continue serving the movement as the ANC's head of elections toward the 2019 General Elections campaign," said Mhlauli.
