MKMVA criticises Zille’s all-male cabinet
28 May 2009
It seems as though Premier Helen Zille will never hear enough criticism from opposition parties about her all-male appointed cabinet.
Yesterday the Umkontho We Sizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) marched to Provincial Parliament demanding that Zille dissolve her cabinet.
The associations National Chairperson, Kebby Maphatsoe says that Zillle has every right to choose her own cabinet, but that certain points should be taken into consideration.
“A cabinet must reflect what South Africa is made up of. You cannot have a male dominated cabinet. We’ve got women, who are the majority in the country,” said Maphatsoe.
“Clearly she is saying that we do not have competent women,” he said.
