Ex-president Kgalema Motlanthe was happy to be demoted to Deputy President having done his job well as a seat-warmer for Mr Zuma.

Wonkie sincerely wishes the cabinet well in their new roles and hopes President Zuma will be harsh on ensuring they deliver the goods for South Africa going forward. It was a little sad to see Helen ‘I object about everything’ Zille still whingeing like crazy about anything and everything. The sooner Mrs Zille learns to pick her battles carefully, the sooner she may start winning the hearts of the South African majority.

I am optimistic about Mr Zuma and his new Cabinet

  1. michael makhado says

    well as a great playa he’ll have all the ladies throwing themselves and maybe reconcile with his ex

  2. i yolala i bonene,lets just pray that jz and co deliver,the way i see it there is not much hope.

  3. Lekgotla says

    To avoid things falling between the cracks (as they did with the old RDP Office of Jay Naidoo which was supposed to ensure that everything is aligned to RDP), Trev will just have to assert his role as the CEO of the team, with JZ and Kgalema as exec Chariman / Vice Chairman, respectively.

  4. Come on guys, let’s give JZ and Company a chance. He’s got so much more to prove than any other individual.

  5. Hell no wat does Nkosazana doin in this cabinet! Viva Trevo Viva! Useqalile uyabangena uMsholozi check ILanga newspaper dated the 7th of May 2009 (thursday), u wil c wat I mean? Winnie can’t wait for Msholozi to act “wil rather kis where Makhumalo kis than to miss this opportunity” – Winnie

  6. It has been like a game of musical chairs. The incompetence has just moved to another chair. Oh, dont forget nobody was left standing there because there are always seats for good buddies.

  7. the cabinet looks so good to say , and honestly i see heads rolling cause we never had of such dept as perfomance monitoring &evalution, this should really be a turn-around period, the struggle is over and it service delivery time, i believe in JZ, he will deliever .

  8. gillkitty says

    yeah…. I feel OK about the new structure; I feel somewhat puzzled too, and a tad worried about the big swing to the left.
    As for Zille – hey the woman has to whinge!! (A) She is the opposition and (B) She’s a woman and it’s what we women do best!

  9. what the ANYL says is true, Zille is losing focus,bring old &legally proved beyond doubt it is becoming personal, she should worry about what cape expect from her role that could better their living standards, for her there is nothing like renaissance, please lady the early you accept the change the better, viva ANC and big up to Msholozi

  10. I realy think we must support our president and its new cabinet to build our country. but my worry is how will this new ministry be structured, from National to Provincial to Local.Women, Youth, Children and People with disabilities – Noluthando Mayende-Sibiya. becuase people with disabilities are still in the strugel,and not been recognise in all three spheres.

    Hopefully JZ has appointed people that can think for themselves not “yes” men like Mbeki had in his cabinet. Who cares if there is not 50% female as long as everybody gets on with improving the country. I think this is S.A last chance before we become another Zim

  12. yee wena–zumaa!!stop wasting taxpayers`s money fighting the da but to fight crime,gangs,drug-dealers,poverty and unemployment!!!

    what zille said is exactly what you told the judges at your rape trial that you might be infected with hiv-aids because you didn`t have a condom on but you dismiss this infection that by saying you went straight to the shower to stave-off this infection.

    Now this is a question of moralities and i believe you are not fit to be a president due to your lack of morals since if you don`t use condoms you can`t encourage and urge us to use them since you don`t believe in them!

  13. beats me why jz had to have such a long list of ministries,its like he had to create new posts for his trusted buddies.Where is he taking us to? makes no sense to have all these ministries in the current economic crises we are facing.to me this might be his first big mistake,whats next?

  14. I strongly think the new team has all it takes to make SA proud. Im not sure if the new man in Finance will be as good as Trevor was. But i let’s wait and see.

    I look fwd to seeing Tokyo forging ahead with housing for the masses.
    I believe the man understands matters of the cheque book as well as matters of the heart and soul.
    I want to see women with babies removed from the streets and given homes and food. I want to see if Tokyo can deliver.

  17. Please conduct some research about street people before you feel sorry for them because once yo can do that you won`t feel sorry for them anymore!

  18. lets give President Zuma and his cabinet all the support.I am optimistic that things are going to change for the better.

  19. ppl who want to see the J.Z leadership colapse show symptoms of backwarding thinking as not only does it affect them persona;;y , they are basically and literally placing their lives in another persons, get up and do something and stop complaining you are rather making noise for US THE OPTOMISTIC ONEs

  20. I’m proud to say, my life is 100% asshole free. ,

  21. i dont see any matter of jz being a president and his polygamy thing.a man is supposed 2 marry women as many as he wishes not dating but marrying them.no man is fulfilled by a one wife,that is why the divorce is in a high rate.

  22. Zuma is an illegitimate President and his government!

    Due to the dirt that he has had to fend off which has ravaged his credibility and credentials her should never hold any public office.

    The manner in which they remove Mbeki`s camp and instal themselves was undemocratic and so legitimacy is in question there!

  23. Zuma is vey good leader guys i like him coz he avoid conflict by all means


  1. […] South African politicians should be happy using public services for themselves and their families – it is one of the truest forms of keeping them in check. So let’s see S’bu Ndebele get ministers to dump their flash 4×4s and start using public transport or the Education MPs convincing their peers to send their own kids to public schools. What better way to demonstrate a true commitment to the people than that? Wonkie dreams on. […]

  2. […] has shown little real value to the South African public since its creation by Jacob Zuma after the 2009 elections. “Tell us about the South Africa you […]
