There have been mixed reactions to President Cyril Ramaphosa’s Thursday night cabinet reshuffle, with the IFP saying the changes did not go far enough.

IFP president Velenkosini Hlabisa said Ramaphosa chose the “easy way out”.

“Despite there being vacant ministerial posts, we wonder if this is not a knee-jerk reaction from the president, due to the issues around — and subsequent resignation of — the Health minister as well as the blatant incompetence of the Security Cluster, as was obvious from the lack of intelligence provided and their inability to prevent the recent unrest.
