Dlamini-Zuma laughs off cabinet reshuffle rumours

South African president’s ex-wife sworn in as lawmaker

Dlamini Zuma's return to Parliament comes five years after she quit as Home Affairs Minister to head the AU Commission.

The decision to send Dlamini-Zuma to Parliament also seems to precipitate yet another Cabinet reshuffle.

Speaking to reporters minutes after she was sworn in as an MP by Lechesa Tsenoli, the Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly, Dlamini-Zuma said for now she was looking forward only to serving in the oversight committees of the legislature.

"Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has had a problem with her campaign".

"Wherever and whatever @MYANC deploys me to do to improve the lives of Africans, I shall undertake in their interest without fear or favour", she wrote on her Twitter account while referring to the ANC. ". She won't be a backbencher in Parliament", Fikeni said.

"I don't mind any committee, I will learn".

In reaction to media queries about her possible appointment, Dlamini-Zuma said she was unaware of it and that all she knew was that she was there to become an MP, which was what the offices of the ANC chief whip and secretary-general told her. They haven't told me anything about that. As far as I am concerned I am coming to Parliament to be a member of Parliament. But she had to be an MP before she can be appointed to Cabinet.

Barely moments after Makhosi Khoza's public resignation from the ANC, the ruling party swore in Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma as a Member of Parliament on Thursday.

It is no secret that Zuma is seeking to re-assert his influence over the ANC caucus at Parliament after dozens of his MPs voted in support of the 8 August Motion of No Confidence in him.

Political analyst Ralph Mathekga said: "There is an opportunity to find a position for NDZ without having to totally overhaul cabinet; there could be a "soft" reshuffle".

It is speculated that President Jacob Zuma will have another cabinet reshuffle after the midnight bloodbath in March.

Several candidates have declared interest to contest for the ANC presidency but analysts say the race will narrow down to a contest between Dlamini-Zuma and Cyril Ramaphosa.

Dlamini-Zuma will immediately undergo an induction program and be provided with all necessary tools of trade to assist her with carrying out her parliamentary duties without delay, parliamentary spokesperson Moloto Mothapo said.
