Here is what Cyril Ramaphosa did Today on [Monday]

President Cyril Ramaphosa has appointed presidency minister Mondli Gungubele as the the new state security agency head.

Back in August 2021, Ramaphosa announced that the state security ministry would be scrapped and rather brought under the control of the presidency.

Gungubele has been assigned as the new head of the state security agency.

The president announced his choice for the new state security agency leader on Monday.

"The president has assigned responsibility for the state security agency to minister Gungubele, who is a cabinet member, while deputy minister Zizi Kodwa continues to serve as deputy minister". Statement by the presidency said.

Last year, Ramaphosa announced the state security ministry would be scrapped and rather brought under the control of the presidency.

"This is in line with his announcement of 5 August 2021 that the ministry of state security would be done away with and political responsibility for the state security agency would reside in the presidency". The statement added.

The state security agency former minister Ayanda Dlodlo is still facing mass criticism over failure to prevent the July riots. It's yet to be seen how Gungubele plans to address this, as well as the former state security agency workers implicated in widespread corruption and state capture.
