South African celebrities reacted in shock over President Jacob Zuma’s late night cabinet reshuffle.
Maps Maponyane, Boity Thulo, Siv Ngesi and Black Coffee added their voices to the debate and the implications the changes have for South Africa.
The announcement made last night by the Presidency saw the rand plummet and analysts warning of far-reaching consequences for the ANC, South Africa and the economy.
As expected, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan got the chop and was replaced by Malusi Gigaba, the now former Minister of Home Affairs.
Another change that saw eyebrows raised was that of Fikile Mbalula, former sport’s minister who now moves to police minister.
Pravin most probably just ended up resigning in the end because he knew what was coming… #cabinetreshuffle
