"Cyril Ramaphosa must shuffle himself out. There, I said it."

@siv_siphofanaSS tweeted:

"You can't forget Bheki Cele. He needs to go with immediate effect."

@keep1249 commented:

"All ministers need to rest but I think @MbalulaFikile is energetic so we keep him for now."

@AvhapfaniM1 tweeted in response:

"Dlamini Zuma, Naledi Pandor, Nkoane Mashamaite, Blade Nzimande, Jamnandas, Ndabeni Abraham, Thoko Didiza, Bheki Cele, Aaron Motsoaledi, and not Mbalula. All the others must go."

@AcksonNavigator added:

"Instead of recycling the same garbage over and over again just get rid of them. Bheki Cele should be number one on the list followed by the Twitter Minister of Transport."
