Making the Right Moves a Challenge for South Africa's New Cabinet

President Cyril Ramaphosa's Cabinet reshuffle has seen the return of Nhlanla Nene as finance minister and Pravin Gordhan as public enterprises minister. The two ministers were fired by former president Jacob Zuma and appears to provide a strong anchor to the new government, restoring investor confidence. Other ministers who failed in their previous portfolios and who have been linked to corruption are still there. Time will tell whether this new team will be successful but as the president himself said, it is a "transitional cabinet".
