Jeff Radebe and Siyabonga Cwele are the latest members of the previous cabinet who also resigned as MPs. Add to this Susan Shabangu, Dipuo Letsatsi-Duma and Nomaindia Mfeketo, then it’s six ex-ministers who are suddenly no longer able to serve in parliament.
Radebe are “praised” because he held six cabinet posts in his term. The moves were indicative after 1994 to “take away” a minister from one position if it was not going well in the department, just to re-deploy him or her in another portfolio.
Political analysts rightly ask whether the resignations are seen as dissatisfaction because they have been posted or are there other dark reasons behind the resignations?
