WATCH LIVE: Cyril Ramaphosa announces his new cabinet

- | 10 months ago

After spending most of Wednesday consulting with his stakeholders in the ANC and advising his future ministers of their selection, President Cyril Ramaphosa is announcing who will be in his new, trimmed-down cabinet.

The president has emphasised that his focus in his first full term after taking over as a caretaker president from Jacob Zuma last year is to stabilise the country’s economy, push for investment and growth, root out corruption and set the country on a path towards more effective and cleaner governance.

Ramaphosa has previously said that his choice of executive will be a reflection of the best the ANC can offer.
