Gwede Mantashe denies cabinet reshuffle reports
13 July 2011
ANC general secretary Gwede Mantashe has denied that Cabinet is about to be overhauled.
Speaking at the University of the Witwatersrand, Mantashe reacted to reports that President Jacob Zuma was considering a Cabinet reshuffle.
This is in the run-up to the ANC’s national conference next year, where he will be seeking re-election.
Speculation was that Zuma hoped to appease a powerful faction in the party linked to the ANC Youth League through the shuffle.
