President Jacob Zuma has announced changes to the national cabinet.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the presidency said the following changes would be made to the national executive:

1. Professor Hlengiwe Mkhize is the Minister of Higher Education and Training;

2. Ayanda Dlodlo is the Minister of Home Affairs;

3. Mmamaloko Kubayi is the Minister of Communications;

4. David Mahlobo is the Minister of Energy;

5. Advocate Bongani Thomas Bongo is the Minister of State Security;

6. Buti Manamela is the Deputy Minister of Higher Education and Training.

“I thank the former members of the national executive for good service in their previous portfolios. I wish the members who are assuming new portfolios all the best in their new responsibilities,” the presidency said.

This is the second cabinet reshuffle this year.

In March, Zuma fired five ministers, including then Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan and his deputy Mcebisi Jonas. They were replaced by former home affairs minister Malusi Gigaba and Sifiso Buthelezi respectively, while Fikile Mbalula was given the position of police minister.

This is a developing story.
