South African President Cyril Ramaphosa wants to make the cabinet, which was reduced from 35 members to 28 in 2019, even smaller, says Minister of Public Service and Administration Senzo Mchunu. The government is also reportedly considering doing away with deputy ministers, who have no constitutional role in the government, while fringe benefits of political office bearers and management positions could also be curtailed as part of the government’s proposal to public service unions. This, City Press reports, as Mchunu made a moving plea that public service unions should agree to a 0% increase in salary negotiations.
