On May 11, 2019, Ramaphosa’s African National Congress (ANC) won the elections with only 57 percent of the votes, and was sworn in as president on May 25, 2019.

In another 96 hours after May 25, Ramaphosa named his cabinet and became the third president on the continent to have a gender-balanced cabinet, after Rwanda and Ethiopia.

While addressing the press on Wednesday evening at the Union Buildings in the capital city of Tshwane, Ramaphosa revealed that he had cut cabinet down the number of ministries in the country from 36 to 28.

The cabinet announced by the 66-year-old president had 14 men and 14 women to achieve gender parity.

“To promote greater coherence, better coordination and improved efficiency, we (are) reducing the number of ministers from 36 to 28,” Ramaphosa said.

“This is a significant move of downscaling our state. Many people believed our government was bloated and this was agreed right across the board. All South Africans are acutely aware of the great economic difficulties our country has been experiencing.

“It is therefore imperative, we place priority on revitalising our economy while exercising the greatest care in the use of public funds. For the first time in the history of our country, half of all ministers are women.”

Patricia De Lille, the leader of an opposition party and former mayor of Cape Town, was also named as minister of public works and infrastructure.

Reacting to her appointment, De Lille said: “I am deeply honoured and humbled to have received the call to serve as a Minister of South Africa’s new cabinet. I have fought for justice in our country for more than 40 years and have no plans to give up fighting.”

The South African rand reacted positively to Ramaphosa’s cabinet, strengthening by 0.5 percent, after an initial loss of one percent before he named the ministers.

A responsible Leader already knows where he's going before boarding a cab. One President from Nigeria will have to set up a committee that will look into the selection of cabinet members and report after one month. grin

He prepared for govt before running in the election. Buhari will tell u he didn't want to contest but was forced by his friends and that even the party form was also bought by his friends because he was very good. Atiku also said the same thing. Yar'dua was also forced to run for presidency. Jonathan became president by accident. Obj was made president to compensate south west for MkO. None of our presidents has ever been ready to run for presidency. It came as a shock to them when they won, it took them long to recover from the shock and that's why it also took long for them to form their cabinets!!

This is what happens when your president is a university ggraduate , instead of an illiterate farmer who likes the song titled "Las Las school na scam"

When you have a graduate as a president it shows in every way, from thought processes to economic policies

You can't elect a stark illiterate as president and then be expecting him to act like this that's very unfair .

Don't compare buhari to other educated presidents compare him to other illiterate presidents then you would see he is trying for his low education Level.

Good. When there's something upstairs it's not hard to see.

That's a pure display of absolute preparedness and readiness to work.


Not some power hugry set of people who only crave for power but lack vision and completely clueless about good leadership.
