President Cyril Ramaphosa has reshuffled his cabinet while also restructuring the administration.
Key changes include the disbanding of the Ministry of State Security which will now fall under the Presidency. This follows unrest in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng for which the security forces were criticised.
The Finance Minister Tito Mboweni has also stepped down.
Earlier Thursday, Zweli Mkhize, the suspended Health Minister, tendered his resignation. Mkhize faces charges over corruption linked to the Covid-19 pandemic. President Ramaphosa thanked Mkhize for what he said was the outstanding work he had done.
