ANC Parliamentary Caucus Welcomes the announcement on the Reconfiguration of Government and changes to the National Executive

06 March 2023 

The ANC Parliamentary Caucus welcomes the reconfiguration of government and  changes to the National Executive announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa today,  06 March 2023. The changes to the National Executive will enhance the government’s  capacity, particularly in the departments where there were vacancies. 

The ANC Caucus believes that the President has taken time to carefully consider the necessary changes informed by the challenges we face as a nation and the need for  government to take decisive action to address them. The Caucus welcomes the  process that the Presidency and National Treasury will undertake to develop proposals  to rationalise government for the new term. 

The ANC Caucus takes this opportunity to welcome the appointment of the Deputy  President of the ANC, Comrade Paul Mashatile, as the Deputy President of the  Republic. 

We also believe that the redeployment of Comrades Khumbudzo Ntshavheni, Dr  Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Mondli Gungubele, to new portfolios as Ministers and Comrades Pinkie Kekana, and Obed Bapela as Deputy Ministers will bring stability to  their respective departments. 

We congratulate the newly appointed Ministers Comrades Maropene Ramokgopa, Thembi Nkadimeng, Noxolo Kiviet, Sihle Zikalala, Zizi Kodwa, Sindisiwe Chikunga and  the Minister for Electricity, Dr Kgosientso Ramokgopa, who has the unenviable task of  ending load shedding and ensuring energy security to accelerate the industrialisation  of our economy to create jobs and keep the lights on in our households and  businesses.

We congratulate the newly appointed Deputy Ministers, Comrades Nomasonto  Motaung, Kenny Morolong, Sisisi Tolashe, Parks Tau, Zolile Burns-Ncamashe, Judith  Tshabalala, Bernice Swarts, Dipuo Peters, and Lisa Mangcu. 

The ANC Caucus believes that the new members of the Executive bring a wealth of experience and a track record of service and integrity.
