In the coming weeks, President Cyril Ramaphosa will reshuffle his Cabinet.
Predicting the changes is a mug's game, as there is no certainty at this point other than the departure of DD Mabuza from the deputy president role. And while the expectation is quite widely held that Ramaphosa has newfound power and discretion following his second Nasrec victory, the reality is that he remains constrained by the ANC and its allies.
It is unrealistic to expect sweeping changes. ANC cliques and factions are swift to punish a president who strays too far from internal expectations, rendering them a lame-duck president before the ink on the new appointments has dried.
