11:32 pm
thirty six to twenty eight 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 this to many south africans does not sound like the strict fight against corruption that the president initially promised he also decided to reappoint the deputy presidents david 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 party fighters even goes as far as to say that this is a declaration of war more on this i'd like to bring in south african journalist very
11:33 pm
rationally pele welcome to 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. haggis and things like having me on the show indeed i hope was i did do as promised are killing out most egregious appointees under former president zuma people like but to be is i mean he who was found to have lied in court people who have really poor brought the government and the party into disrepute now that's not to say that all of them of so-called allies have been cleared out really what the cloud really hard not to make it look like a witch hunt and it's not to say that all the candidates are computer eighteen but i didn't view those who were involved in the state capture project mostly because he had out although we must realize that evidence still coming out over
11:34 pm
a lot of people who might still go on to be implicated alright freshly out there is there is that he's had to do two things he's had to manage expectations from within the parties also had to manage expectations from the public in compiling this this this cabinet how do you think he say it look at what he was a balancing act no drama of course. famous for being a skilled negotiator 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 together 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 less minister. fisher energy. people names are probably hoping for more of their allies to be in some different actions ok so he didn't entirely make it that he. right but just on that
11:35 pm
point by genetics want us to listen to it on the horses speaking out because money is a big factor with the way south africa's economy is that it's a central force and i want to get your reaction to that in a second. also africans are acutely aware of the great economic difficulties that our country is going through right now. but they are also aware of the constraints that have been placed on our public finances it is therefore impertinent that in all areas of the spheres of government we place a priority or revitalizing our economy wide at the same time exercising grades k. in the use of public funds ok so the use of public funds these ridges the cabinet by about eight ministries but some critics say that he could have done more for example there's a lot of data that he could have x.
11:36 pm
how do you think he did in this regard very picky well obviously didn't do a very good job looking for a lot more and i think he was hoping for a lot more but adding to the price he's paying will keeping it on a same page and we must remember that cutting down on ministries is not the only way to save money so does my view for the school fees pain so that he can reduce money outs when he's already started doing that they do seem costs out so it all right south african journalists fresh 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 twenty six he is the youngest member of parliament in guyana and sais she hopes to inspire the next generation of young female lawmakers. twenty six year old francisco or teen he's gotten his youngest member of parliament

you're young different like you do that is period you know how that is pulled out to make meaningful contributions when it comes to decision making there are seven to one kenyan m.p.'s below the age of forty five francisco is the only one and that's eighty so the question of inspiring younger politicians falls upon hey i have a tax same 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 an opportunity she came and messed up many female politicians who look up to our team for inspiration so five young women have been very impressed by his story and actions is making a case for you and your son is. right i think we have
