Questions for oral reply by President Jacob Zuma in the National Assembly
18 Nov 2010Mr P J Groenewald (FF Plus) to ask the President of the Republic:
With reference to his statement on 31 October 2010 that he has changed his Cabinet in order to ensure improved service delivery and strengthen existing Ministries, in what way will these changes to his Cabinet bring about improved service delivery?
The composition of Cabinet and the appointment of Deputy Ministers is the prerogative of the President.
The President is under no obligation to explain the reasons for his actions in this regard.
However, I did indicate on the 31st of October when we announced changes to the national executive, that having spent 17 months in government, we have had time to study the functioning of the current administration.
We have been able to ascertain what works and what needs to be changed or strengthened.
We were guided by the mission of our government, which is to improve the quality of life of all South Africans, especially the poor, working with all our people.
I wish to take this opportunity to thank the former members of Cabinet for their contribution to government and to the nation during their term of office.
I thank you.
