it was hard for. you to go white hair. language and tell all this to keep me in critical but you need to interact with say you want to their story lines are reporting and reliable information for margaret. you know. this is the news africa coming up in the next 15 minutes south africa's new cabinet has been sworn in and most of the faces will be familiar to south africans so mold noticeable is that there are more women but has the president sort of managed to rid the act of all corrupt elements. and be off with made out off calm down we have a revolt on one does any how would survive the $9094.00 genocide and the women preserving it's today.
i'm christine wonderwall come to deeds every news africa i'm glad you're in we begin in south africa where presidents settled on the poll says a new cabinet has been sworn in stemming corruption and mismanagement that has cost the country hundreds of millions as a key toss for this cabinet it's a major issue also facing the ruling a.n.c. whose election when this was the weakest in its 25 he is in power. has this report now from the legislative capital. the cabinet announcement received mixed reactions here in south africa president was praised for the gender equality 50 percent of the ministers are women he was also praised for reducing the number of ministers from 36 to 28 although at the same time he increased the number of deputy minister the president also decided. to leave some controversial party members out of the
cabinet like the former minister of woman who is accused of mismanaging government funds but at the same time the president said that those who were left out of the cabinet will be able to help the government in other rules and vista many south africans does not sounds like the strict fight against corruption that the president initially promised he also decided to reappoint the deputy president. once again who is actually also facing allegations for corruption and money laundering as well as public enterprises minister gordon who the public protector says should face disciplinary actions for improper conduct the opposition party of the economic freedom fighters even goes as far as to say that this is a declaration of war for more on this i'd like to bring in south african journalist welcome to the africa very rationally so how clean is it i'm
a forces cabinet did he manage to get rid of all the former president jacob zuma people appointees who are perceived as being corrupt. have seen things that having me on the show indeed i hope was that did do ask promised are keeping out most egregious appointees under former president zuma people like but to be it i mean he who was found to have lied in court people who have really poor brought the government and the pot into disrepute and that's not to say that all of them of so-called allies have been cheated out you know what the tried really hard not to make it look like a witch hunt and it's not just that all the candidates are competing cian but didn't keep those who were involved in the state capture project have been mostly b.p. had out although we must realise that evidence still coming out over a lot of people who might still go on to be implicated. all right freshly out there is there is that he's had to do 2 things he's had to manage expectations from
within the party he's also had to manage expectations from the public in compiling this this this cabinet how do you think he'd say it look at what he was a balancing act no examples are famous for being a skilled negotiator as someone who was instrumental in bringing about the end of apartheid and a negotiated settlement so he really consulted widely and extensively to try to keep a very divided party and government to get though right and to buy into the changes he was trying to make so that means that no one was really very happy the public was hoping for deeper cuts to government minister has a right fishing energy. people need to probably hoping people open their eyes to be in london actually ok so he didn't entirely make him happy ok because i'd have to. write that just on that point by genetics let us in this ensued i'm opposed to
speaking a because money is a big factor with way south africa's economy is at its is in trouble and i want to get your reaction to that in a 2nd also africans are acutely aware of the great economic difficulties that our country is going through right now but there also are way over the constraints that have been placed on our public finances it is therefore imperative that you know all the areas and spheres of government we place priority on and revitalizing our economy while at the same time exercising great's k. in the use of public funds ok so the use of public funds he's reduced the cabinet by about 8 ministries but some critics say that he could have done more for example there's a lot of defeats he said he could have x. how do you think he did in this regard van pycke. well obviously he didn't do a very good job of looking for a lot more and i think he was hoping for
a lot more but adding to the price he's paying for keeping it on to the same page and we must remember that cutting down on ministries is not the only way to save money so does might be for the school fees pain so that he can reduce money elsewhere he's already started doing that the juice in cost out so it all right south african journalists freshmeat paid a talking to us from johannesburg thank you thank you very much ok so while on the subject of public servants i want to introduce you to this lady behind me this will be honorable francisco attainments that at just 26 he is the youngest member of parliament in guyana and sais she hopes to inspire the next generation of young female lawmakers. 26 year old francisco or teen he's gonna see youngest member of parliament she was just 23
when she was elected into him to 16 apart from making laws or team finds time to respond to alexis from head constitutes. i think in politics is one to give so much as poza especially when it comes to member of parliament it's a good spirits and i hope to lend more each and every day i seem to be a lead in process for me ghana has 275 m.p.'s and 36 of them are female that is still short of the entire tree. 30 percent representation. explains why it's so tall for young female politicians the perception is. you don't have the strength you don't have. to fit into the political arena and then of course if you're young different like you do no harm that is period you don't have to make meaningful contributions when it comes to
decision making there are 7 to one m.p.'s below the age of $45.00 francisco is the only one that's 18 so the question of inspiring young. falls upon hey i have a tax some issue i succeed because if i don't succeed i want to be asked to. come up and see. at this is a defense to. give a young person. she came and mess up many female politicians who look up to our team for inspiration so 5 young women have been very impressed by his story and actions she is making the case for you and your son is appreciated for all of us i think we have a new generation w.c. believes in their intellectual ability of people hopefully some of these women will
soon join francisco in parliament. all right our next story is there. and the way cow dung just as you see it behind me is the made element off a popular art form known as inequal it's believed to date back to the 18th century ad during the 1994 genocide in english skills almost disappeared but a women's initiative rescued the art form and it continues to thrive in the country . the manure is mixed together with soil and spread out onto good nords after drying these artists file the relief smooth and paint them with natural pigments made of plants or ground minerals. this form of ours is called him a gong go. it has a long tradition in rwanda that goes back to the rwandan monarchy
a prince invented it not to hang on the wall but to turn the wall itself into a work of art. because we're much is a when you come of this decoration it was seen as an important symbol in all of the houses in this region. and to make them go was there to keep the house nice and clean but after a while people gave of this tradition. just before the rwandan genocide a few women got together to revive in the congo but then the country fell to unimaginable violence. across rwanda radical hutus incited members of their own ethnic group to wipe out the tutsi minority almost a 1000000 people were killed and 100 danes including most of the in my congo artists. the few who survived lost their entire families.
we had nothing. no houses no food for our children. but because we women work together we could support each other. that was the biggest difference between us and the other villagers. and everyone had problems and was traumatized but we had each other it helped a lot of. the artists taught other genocide survivors what they knew since then 15 women have been working together in the cookie cooperative. their motifs are traditional rwandan symbols often from the natural world the spiral represents an elephant's trunk. the zigzag a crocodile. the women consciously avoid portraying the horrors of 1994. with.
some artist write songs or books about the genocide but that's out of the question for us. if you cannot create a picture showing someone killing a person. our picture should help people and have a positive effect on society. often in the overview of a mother who would be trying. their hard work is already shown and many different countries pictures made of cow manure have helped the women to earn a living and to heal their songs. and that's where it will leave it for now from the news africa as always you can catch all our stories on our website and facebook page today will leave you with some stunning pictures for training muslims observing ramadan across the african continent still next time by buying.
