New GNU ministers to be sworn in this week

Ramaphosa said that the new government will serve all South Africans

President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced that the new Government of National Unity (GNU) ministers and deputy ministers will be sworn in this week. This announcement was made in his weekly newsletter.


 This announcement comes after Ramaphosa revealed his new cabinet on Sunday night. "The ministers and deputy ministers of the new Government of National Unity will be sworn in this week. This is a significant moment in our country's democracy. We have made good on our promise to the South African people to work together as political parties for the good of the country and to deliver a government that will be united in action and purpose." This provides a firm basis for greater stability, coherence, and a focus on implementation. Even in some of the world's most established democracies, the formation of multi-party governments is often protracted and fraught with challenges. That we have reached this pivotal point just over four weeks after the election results were announced is a credit to our constitutional order. It is also a testament to the authentic, collaborative spirit that has underpinned the negotiations over the past few weeks," he said.


Ramaphosa said that the new government will serve all South Africans. "South Africans appreciate that a GNU is the best way to take our country forward. As political leaders, we must prove ourselves worthy of the trust our citizens have placed in this government. The partnership between the GNU parties is guided by a Statement of Intent, which outlines fundamental principles and a minimum programme of priorities. "All the parties have committed to respecting the constitution and promoting accountable and transparent governance, evidence-based policy and decision-making, the professionalisation of the public service, integrity, and good governance," he said.
