South Africa Waits for Announcement of New Cabinet

President Cyril Ramaphosa didn't announce his Cabinet as was widely expected on Sunday. The Daily Maverick's Marianne Merten writes that it is unprecedented that a day after assuming office the new president of South Africa has neither announced a Cabinet, nor indicated a firm time on which such an announcement will be made. The delay in the Cabinet announcement comes in the wake of governing ANC ructions, including Deputy President David Mabuza's decision not to be sworn in as an MP.
