Jacob Zuma has reshuffled the ANC leaders in charge of the party's internal subcommittees.
JOHANNESBURG - President Jacob Zuma has reshuffled the ANC leaders in charge of the party's internal subcommittees.
A formal announcement about the Luthuli House reshuffle is expected on Tuesday.
ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa will be replaced by Justice Minister Jeff Radebe as head of the party's national disciplinary appeals committee (NDAC), while Science and Technology Minister Derek Hanekom will be retained as the boss of the national disciplinary committee (NDC).
International Relations and Cooperation Deputy Minister Ebrahim Ebrahim, former Arts and Culture Minister Pallo Jordan and convicted fraudster Tony Yengeni have lost their positions.
Political analyst Somadoda Fikeni on Monday said the new subcommittee chairs were not the best the ANC had to offer.
"Not all the leaders who may chair these committees are the most capable within those committees, but other factors are taken into account."
Sport and Recreation Minister Fikile Mbalula has been replaced by Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane as the head of organising.
