Is president Cyril Ramaphosa going to reshuffle his cabinet after what happened?

There is an immediate choice that President Cyril Matamela Ramaphosa must make. This decision pertains to sexual assault allegations against cabinet member Enoch Godongwana. He might send a powerful message that the wealthy and powerful can be held accountable for their roles in Gender-Based Violence if he were to remove him from office.

President Cyril Matamela Ramaphosa is under increasing pressure to fire Enoch Godongwana, the minister of finance, due to claims of sexual assault.

Several groups, including the African National Congress Women's League (ANCWL) and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), have demanded that Minister Enoch Gondongwana be arrested and prosecuted. Not in Our Name International has now joined this group.

After charges of sexual harassment surfaced against Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) called on President Cyril Ramaphosa to fire Godongwana and promised to never again invite him to speak at one of their rallies.

A woman has claimed that Enoch Godongwana, who is suspected of sexually harassing her at a spa, promised her R250,000 to drop the case.
