CAPE TOWN - The Progressive Professionals Forum (PPF) on Thursday congratulated the newly appointed ministers and deputy ministers announced by South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa.
The president announced his executive on Wednesday evening, reducing the size of cabinet from 36 to 28 ministers.
The PPF said it was also pleased with the individual and the collective qualities and characteristics of the appointed “credible” men and women.
“PPF, as the representative of the country’s middle strata, welcomes the reconfiguration of the national departments from 36 to 28, as such a decision augurs well with the thrust and the vision of the country’s strategic plan which seeks to espouse the developmental agenda of the state, as well as the commitments as encapsulated in the 2019 ANC [African National Congress] manifesto,” said PPF president Kashif Wicomb in a statement.
Wicomb further said the PPF welcomed the reintroduction of the performance management system against which individual members of Team Grow South Africa shall be held accountable.
