Eastern Cape and KZN ANC leaders are bulk of reduced cabinet
The geographical spread of ministers and deputies is seen as a welcome move by some analysts
High-ranking ANC leaders from KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape make up the bulk of President Cyril Ramaphosa’s reconfigured cabinet, compared to former president Jacob Zuma’s first cabinet in 2009.
Zuma also appointed his allies to head the crucial security cluster portfolios. However, under Ramaphosa, the security cluster ministries have been spread evenly and are headed by ministers from across the provinces.
