Parliament - Parliament's portfolio committees on Tuesday elected a raft of Zuma-era ministers and MPs with perceived loyalties to the former president as chairperson.
Among these are former energy minister Tina Joemat-Pettersson, who will head the portfolio committee on police, and former state security minister Bongani Bongo who was elected to chair the portfolio committee on Home Affairs.
Opposition MPs pledged to work with Joemat-Pettersonn, despite earlier raising grave concern about her nomination, but the Home Affairs committee took the better part of half an hour to elect Bongo after the Democratic Alliance (DA) fielded an alternative candidate in Angel Khanyile.
The standing committee on finance unanimously approved the nomination of former Zuma-era transport minister Joe Maswanganyi.
He said afterwards that he would steer through the policy turmoil on finance, in particular the debate ranging over the mandate of the South African Reserve Bank, by sticking to the provision of the constitution. There is pressure from within the ruling African National Congress (ANC) to amend the mandate of the central bank, which in terms of the constitution has the task of protecting the local currency.
