Now that the 2019 Election is over and done with and the ANC remains the ruling party, the focus will naturally fall on the many things that the government needs to address as soon as possible.

One of the first things that South Africans will likely want to see changed is the members of the party that hold key positions.

There are a number of ministers that the country would like to see removed, and after President Ramaphosa said there is no place for the corrupt in the ANC, it is hoped he will stay true to his word.

One minister that many South Africans feel is not suited for the job is Bathabile Dlamini, Minister of Women in the Presidency.

The Mail and Guardian reported that Dlamini was convicted and fined after she pleaded guilty to fraud involving an amount of R254,000 back in October of 2006.

Many people feel she should be replaced, but she says no one has before talked to her about the ANC's list.

“During the campaigning, I never came across anyone who raised that issue. The ANC was happy about our role of mobilising the society to vote for the ANC.”

EWN reports that there are disgruntled ANC members who are not happy with some of the names on the list submitted to the Independent Electoral Commission, including Dlamini, claiming that it's not reflective of the decisions made by ANC branches.
