Pretoria - Former Cape Town mayor Patricia De Lille has made a surprise addition to President Cyril Ramaphosa's Cabinet as the minister of Public Works and Infrastructure.
De Lille is the leader of the newly formed GOOD party and her inclusion has come as a surprise for many South Africans.
She formed the party in December 2018 months after her resignation from the DA following a public spat and legal battles with the party.
The law does permit the president to appoint ministers that are members of Parliament and he can have two picks from outside Parliament.
Ramaphosa made his cabinet announcement on Wednesday night ending weeks of speculations over his much-anticipated cabinet.
