Gauteng premier’s spokesperson Vuyo Mhaga he can confirm there will be a reshuffle.
“I can’t confirm the actual date that he’s going to do it, he’s still in engagement with the leadership of the ANC in the broader issue of the 60/40 mandated by the NEC of the ANC, and obviously what must be the way forward, I won’t say it will happen or not we’ve not engaged on a time frame.”
