JOHANNESBURG - The Presidency has denied any sinister motives behind the departure of two advisers from President Jacob Zuma's office. 

Just one week after Zuma’s third cabinet reshuffle, the president’s political advisor Charles Nqakula announced he would vacate his current post at the end of June and become a high commissioner in Mozambique.

Nqakula also held office of minister in the departments of defence and safety and security. He previously led a task team to Zimbabwe and was Zuma's special envoy to Sudan.

Advisor and former spokesperson in the Presidency Zizi Kodwa will also vacate his post to become a communication manager at the Gauteng Film Commission. 

Presidency spokesperson Mac Maharaj said “We always look for some motive… there is no a sinister motive.”
