JOHANNESBURG - President Cyril Ramaphosa's newly configured Cabinet ministers have been officially sworn in.

Acting Chief Justice Raymond Zondo officiated the process on Friday afternoon at the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana was the first to take the oath: “I, Enoch Godongwana, swear that I will be faithful to the Republic of South and will obey, respect and uphold the Constitution and all other law of the Republic.”

Ramaphosa announced the changes to his Cabinet on Thursday night.

Three newly appointed ministers have taken the oath of office promising to obey, respect and uphold the Constitution of South Africa.

Newly appointed Health Minister Joe Phaahla and Minister in the Presidency Mondli Gungubele were also sworn in.

Taking the oath of office has become even more sacred given failure by some current and former members of the executive to live by its requirements.
