Bathabile Dlamini says she has made peace with being dumped out of President Cyril Ramaphosa’s cabinet.She was the Minister of Women before the new cabinet was announced.She also remains President of the ANC Women’s League.
She told Sowetan that the decision of the president and ANC officials to equalise the number of women and men was welcome.
“It is the first time in the history of this country that the decisions of the NEC for equal representation are implemented,” said Dlamini.
“We fought so hard, such that when we could not get females for premiers, we said in provinces where premiers are men, women must be the majority of the executive and speakers in provincial legislatures must be women.”Dlamini said the league was concerned that some provinces were disobeying this NEC resolution, promising that there would be blood on the floor, as the ANCWL would hold them accountable.
President Ramaphosa’s brother in law Jeff Radebe also takes a bow from public service after 25 years.
He was Minister in the Presidency and does not return after serving under five presidents in seven Ministries.
He said in a statement released today,”Considering new options, marks a new era for me and my family. I look forward to being able to enjoy the routines of normal life as well as immersing myself into new possibilities. As the saying goes, every next level of our lives will demand a different version of ourselves. I wish the new cabinet well – it is indeed a new Dawn for all of you.
