On Wednesday, Briefly.co.za reported that Deputy-President David Mabuza will not be sworn in along with the rest of Parliament. The office of the Presidency released a statement explaining that Mabuza will be awaiting the outcome of the ANC Intergrity Commission's investigation.

This led to Mzansi coming up with suggestions on who they preferred to be the next deputy-head of the country and one name repeatedly came up - Thuli Madonsela.
