NEWLY sworn in President Cyril Ramaphosa finally made changes to the cabinet on Monday night.
Following his announcement Mzansi made wide criticism on his new cabinet.
Ramaphosa however, says he did not have to compromise on the composition of his new Cabinet.
He pointed out that it is a "transitional" Cabinet that will take the country to the next elections.
Many in South Africa expected Ramaphosa to remove all the Gupta linked ministers from cabinet, including those that were linked to disastrous leadership in certain departments.
The ANCWL President Bathabile Dlamini was expected to be on top of the list, following the poor management of the SASSA debacle, which could have compromised the poor in the country, however - Ramaphosa had different plans.
He appointed Bathabile Dlamini as the minister of Women in The Presidency.
While Ramaphosa has been always jovial when addressing the media since his swearing as president, he somewhat didn't look happy - when he made the announcement on the new ministers, could this have something to do with the smallanya skeleton's that Bathabile Dlamini was talking about in 2016.
In an interview with the SABC in 2016, Dlamini referred to "smallanyana skeletons" as she was cautioning ANC members against airing the party’s dirty laundry in the media.
In the interview Dlamini said: “All of us in the NEC have our smallanyana skeletons and we don’t want to take out skeletons because all hell will break loose."
Could this be the reason why the likes of Former Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba, Former Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini and the Former Water and Sanitation Minister Nomvula Mokonyane who once said "If the Rand falls, we will pick it up", survived the axe? because of the "smallanyana skeletons".
Gigaba however who has been linked to the Gupta-Family, has made it into Cyril's "transitional" cabinet.
He was appointed Home Affairs minister, where the State Capture allegedly began, when he naturalised the Gupta's citizenship in the country despite not fulfilling residential requirements.
Meanwhile, last week a court judgment made in December found Gigaba had deliberately lied under oath.
In this regard, the court also found that Gigaba violated the Constitution.
