Is this Ramaphosa’s future Cabinet?

Recommended Posts

CAPE TOWN — There’s some real excitement at the prospects of a reformed cabinet under incoming President Cyril Ramaphosa. Just the mention of names like Pravin Gordhan and Naledi Pandor in an allegedly leaked list of Cabinet nominees – and the absence of some seriously corrupt current wreckers – is enough to get the rand into the starting blocks. Here Donwald Pressly uses his long-standing contacts and inside sources in national politics to construct a fascinating glimpse of what might happen under Cyril Ramaphosa. Just how quickly a reformed cabinet is appointed of course depends on the former trade union and corporate executive guru’s adroitness in managing the existing political mix to get the troublesome incumbent out. He’ll be helped by a potent mix of legal rulings that render his adversary more vulnerable than he’s ever been, and hindered by the very glue that has held the ANC together; the compromised evenly-split NEC and top six. But we have a new national boss on the wing and that’s pretty damn uplifting. – Chris Bateman
