Anything ‘Junkier’ Than Status?

In Current Affairs
Junk-status-for-students

South Africa’s president, Jacob Zuma, can be said to be a man who has weathered many storms- and not the good kind, if storms can be said to be any good. Zuma’s 2006 rape trial recently resurfaced in 2016 under the hashtags #RememberKhwezi and #1in3. He has faced scandals involving alleged poisoning by his second wife, arms deal fraud in 2005 with Schabir Shaik, the switching of three finance ministers in one week and his relation to the infamous and influential Gupta family.

The latest in a line of scandals occurred the end of March, as South Africa witnessed Zuma call for a literal ‘groundbreaking’ cabinet reshuffle which resulted in the clearance of up to twenty ministers. A ‘cabinet reshuffle’ can be defined as the rotation and repositioning of ministers by the head of state. This reshuffle in particular can be deemed to be unprecedented due to the fact that former finance minister Pravin Gordhan has been replaced by Malusi Gigaba, former home affairs minister. Another reason being the fact that Minister of Social Development, Bathabile Dlamini, has managed to maintain her spot in cabinet despite her blatant incompetence in the recent SASSA scandal.
