JOHANNESBURG – Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema says he believes that yet another Cabinet reshuffle is on the cards and it will include appointing Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma as a minister, something the president isn’t “courageous enough” to do now.
There’s been speculation that Zuma would reshuffle his Cabinet for some time, especially after his preferred candidate for African National Congress president, Dlamini-Zuma, was appointed as an MP.

Buti Manamela has been appointed as deputy Higher Education Minister. However, no one was appointed to replace him as deputy minister in the Presidency.
Malema says he believes that there’ll be another Cabinet reshuffle because Dlamini-Zuma hasn’t yet been appointed as a minister.
The EFF leader pointed out that Manamela’s position in the Presidency remains open.
“Buti’s place has not been replaced. I think it is being reserved for madam (Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma). They are just not courageous enough. When the time permits, they’ll put madam into the position.”
At the same time, Malema says that the decision to move David Mahlobo from State Security Minister to Energy Minister is clearly aimed at securing a nuclear deal with Russia.
