Calls are mounting on President Cyril Ramaphosa to appoint credible and capable people when he announces his Cabinet soon.
JOHANNESBURG – Calls are mounting on President Cyril Ramaphosa to appoint credible and capable people when he announces his Cabinet soon.
On Wednesday, Ramaphosa said his new executive will form part of his reform package that he has planned for the country.
Speculation is rife that Ramaphosa could reduce his Cabinet by up to nine positions.
Reports say unverified lists are making the rounds, with Ramaphosa under pressure to omit controversial ministers.
Council for the Advancement of the Constitution appealed to President Ramaphosa to stick to his commitment.
Spokesperson Lawson Naidoo said: “We’ve recently seen that unemployment has gone up again.
“The necessity of creating a climate in which jobs can be created is important for us and the president needs to appoint women and men who are able to move the country forward and who will commit to the ideals of the Constitution towards rebuilding South African society.”
