'Judgment on reasons for reshuffle encroaches executive realm'

Some of the MPs sworn in as MPs in the National

Some of the MPs sworn in as MPs in the National

Judge Bashier Vally made the order in the North Gauteng High Court a short while ago.

As happened in December 2015 when President Zuma abruptly fired the highly respected Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene, and replacing him by Des van Rooyen, a little known ANC backbencher, billions of rand have been wiped off the value of workers' pension funds. "The timing of the announcement of the reshuffle, in the middle of the night, also serves to highlight the real motives and intent by the President Zuma".

Ramaphosa usually publicly backs Zuma and his criticism of Gordhan's sacking was a sign of deepening divisions in the ruling African National Congress that are likely to worsen until the party elects a new leader in December.

"Every exercise of public power must be subject to the principles of legality and rationality, especially the exercise of all of the President's powers, which includes decisions to appoint or dismiss ministers and deputy ministers", said Selfe.

The presidency was not immediately available to comment.

UFC creates 4th weight class for women, adding 125-pounders
News of the division class comes just a few months after the promotion introduced its third women's division, the featherweights. Current UFC fighters are free to apply for TUF provided they can make flyweight through out the season.

The amateurish document held that Gordhan and Jonas were conspiring with global financiers to topple Zuma, providing no evidence for the assertion.

On Friday, Kodwa said that reading into the Constitution that the President must explain his Cabinet decisions was "to use the judiciary to police political decisions and sets a very worrisome precedent".

The reshuffle prompted worldwide rating agencies Standard & Poor's and Fitch to downgrade South Africa's sovereign credit to junk status in April.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Africa, Zuma was responding to a question from the floor on how young people can play a bigger role in decision making. It's a legitimate legal process and I'm sure there are going to be further steps in the process, so let's wait and see", he said on the sidelines of the opening of an exhibition titled "Promises and Lies: "The ANC, Exile and the Project of Freedom".
