Reading Time: < 1 minute

All eyes are on President Cyril Ramaphosa as he will announce his much anticipated cabinet.

He is expected to reveal a smaller cabinet that will be effective and ensure that certain ministries will deliver on their mandate.

As South Africa turns a new tide, the first priority for the President will be to turn the country’s economy around.

He will need competent members of cabinet who are equal to the task.

Cabinet is expected to be reduced from 35 to 25 departments, in ensuring that the economic cluster is efficient.

Some analysts say various departments that focus on the economy should be merged.

The President took his oath of office at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria.

In his address to the nation, he vowed to work to end poverty and acknowledged the challenges faced by South Africans.
