Zuma allegedly pressured to reshuffle cabinet

Zuma allegedly pressured to reshuffle cabinet”

The Guptas and their companies have not been charged with any crime in South Africa, but allegations by government and opposition politicians that they used a friendship with President Jacob Zuma to control state businesses are among many scandals that have dogged Zuma's presidency. Take note of who she was replaced by: David Mahlobo who was trained in Russian Federation before he took up the position of intelligence minister in 2014. The instructions from Putin were clear: Speed up and conclude the controversial nuclear deal.

"Their visit was to deliver what many of us believe to be the final warning to the South African authorities". This group does not normally leave Russian Federation.

The team was allegedly acting on direct orders of Russian President Vladimir Putin and included members of the military, police and intelligence.

"Zuma's initial plan was to appoint Muthambi, but was pressured by the Russians to instead appoint Mahlobo".

The National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU) has come out against the recent cabinet reshuffle that saw SACP Secretary General Blade Nzimande ousted from higher education portfolio. Nzimande was replaced by former home affairs minister Hlengiwe Mkhize.

The newspaper reported on Sunday that a high-level Russian delegation met Zuma just hours before this week's Cabinet reshuffle, in efforts to implement a R1tn new nuclear build project deal.

Following Mahlobo's appointment, the new energy minister said South Africa will move ahead with nuclear power.

"South Africa has made a policy decision to pursue nuclear energy as part of the energy mix".
