President Cyril Ramaphosa left South Africa's collective jaw hanging on Wednesday evening when he announced that Good party leader and former Cape Town mayor, Patricia de Lille, would be assuming the role of Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure. It didn't take long for "Aunty Pat"and "Patricia de Lille" to trend on Twitter. Here are some of the reactions from South Africans across the political spectrum: Former DA member, Lindiwe Mazibuko congratulated her former party colleague. Aunty Pat! ?????????? #CabinetAnnoucement @PatriciaDeLille— Lindiwe Mazibuko (@LindiMazibuko) May 29, 2019 Chester Missing congratulated the "Minister of Floor Crossings".Well done to one of my favorites, Patricia De Lille, Minister of Floor Crossing.— Chester Missing (@chestermissing) May 29, 2019 Gareth Van Onselen, head of politics and governance at the Institute of Race Relations got snarky about De Lille's history of political affiliation.Patricia de Lille’s political career to date:PACIDDAGOODANCPan Africanism, Social Democrat, Liberalism, Egomania and African Nationalism.That’s Bingo!— Gareth van Onselen (@GvanOnselen) May 29, 2019 Sane Sidimba saw things differently. Patricia de Lille is the Brooke Logan of SA politics.#CabinetAnnouncement pic.twitter.com/incd8qnKRa— @sanesidimba (@SaneSidimba) May 29, 2019 Siphumelele Zondi, producer and anchor of the Network on SABC made some interesting observations. Patricia de Lille is a government minister. Only opposition leader to be minister, it seems. She leaves the DA, forms her own party and becomes a government minister. #CabinetAnnouncement— Siphumelele Zondi (@SZondi) May 29, 2019 Ranjeni Munusamy, associate editor for analysis at Tiso Blackstar had an unique take. I told you all that Patricia de Lille is the Meryl Streep of SA politics.#CabinetAnnouncement— Ranjeni Munusamy (@RanjeniM) May 29, 2019 Sanef deputy chair, Katy Katopodis wondered if the President was sending the DA a message. Patricia De Lille ... now that’s a surprise!The President showing the DA the middle finger ? #CabinetAnnouncement— Katy Katopodis (@KatyKatopodis) May 29, 2019 POWERtalk on Powerfm987 host and broadcast journalist, Aldrin Sampear, suggested De Lille walking by DA leader Mmusi Maimane might be awkward. When Aunty Pat walks pass Mmusi in parly for Public Works Budget Speech ???????? https://t.co/VdQB6RY3zY— Aldrin Sampear (@AldrinSampear) May 29, 2019 Former DA leader and Western Cape Premier, Helen Zille remains unshaken. No pain from me, believe it.— Helen Zille (@helenzille) May 29, 2019 Brett Herron, Good secretary general, in a statement, welcomed the appointment."We said when good people do nothing, that allows corruption and wrongdoing to prosper. It is thus entirely appropriate that we support our leader’s appointment to the Cabinet. We are walking the talk. Our Good leader has been asked to serve our country and we can only respond by saying a good person has been asked to do something," said Herron. He added that "the President has recognised the commitment and track record of a great South African and we support her appointment and the contribution she’s been asked to make. Good will remain an opposition party in the National Assembly and the provincial legislature.""We wish her well in her new role."
