CAPE TOWN - Government on Thursday rejected the Democratic Alliance (DA)'s cabinet scorecard for 2012.

The DA scored President Jacob Zuma an 'F', citing issues like the Nkandla scandal as only one of the reasons why he has failed the country.

The party's Wilmot James said several other cabinet ministers were also given an 'F 'grading.

"Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant, who was missing in action during a number of South Africa's labour disputes, the minister of police and Minister of State Security Siyabonga Cele, who has continued to drive his unconstitutional 'Secerecy Bill'."

Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi received one of only two 'A' gradings.

Government spokesperson Phumla Williams said, "Our view is that the current assessment by the DA is inaccurate and mischievous."

DA Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko said, "2012 revealed with more clarity than ever before the extent to which we have a leaderless government that is not delivering."
