press release

The media reports that President Jacob Zuma has summoned Ministers to a special Cabinet meeting today are not true. What is taking place today are routine meetings of Cabinet Committees which are scheduled months before. Cabinet had been in recess and resumed business last week with the Cabinet lekgotla.

The meetings of Cabinet Committees take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays to process matters that will be taken to Cabinet. The committee meetings are attended by both Ministers and Deputy Ministers while Cabinet meetings are attended by Ministers only.

A routine Cabinet meeting will take place next week. There is nothing unusual or extraordinary about the meetings. The schedule was finalised last year.
