Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has responded to claims that she may be called upon to serve as South Africa's deputy-president. The minister in the presidency says that she will serve her party to the best of her ability, regardless of the position.
Minister in the presidency, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, has responded to claims doing the rounds on social media that she will be called upon to serve as the nation's deputy-president.
Rumors have been circulating around an unverified list of the proposed cabinet, where Dlamini-Zuma is listed as President Cyril Ramaphosa's second-in-command.
When asked about the matter, the minister simply stated that it was the president's prerogative who he appointed, but that she would heed the call, should it come:
"I've always said, if I'm asked to sweep the floor, I'll sweep it very clean - whatever I'm asked to do I will do."
Briefly.co.za reported that the politician, who lost the chance to run the ANC to Ramaphosa in 2017, cast her vote during special voting on Monday.
