Making Sense of Cyril's Reshuffle

President Cyril Ramaphosa announced his new cabinet last week. In his message about the reshuffle, Ramaphosa said that the changes come as the country faces a number of challenges including the Covid-19 vaccination programme, peace and stability after recent and unrest and is now mobilising resources to rebuild the economy.

Did Ramaphosa's cabinet reshuffle go far enough? Or this is just a politically balanced approach to ensure votes at the upcoming elections?
What does this mean from an economic perspective?
Who are the winners and losers of Ramaphosa's cabinet reshuffle?
Is it a wise move for the president to take security under his wing? Or it shows a lack of trust?
Did the minister of finance and the minister of health actually resign or they were pushed off the cliff

Let's Talk - Can we recover?

A lot has happened since the incarceration of former President Jacob Zuma. Will this improve SA's status as a good investment destination? Or is it a little too late?

Then we have seen the so-called "Free Zuma" protests. The country is up in flames. Malls have been looted and burnt down. What is the impact of this on the economy? Can we recover? What needs to be fixed to change this self-implosive, mob psychology streak in SA? Have we lost the plot as a nation and can Ramaphosa fix this?
