Steenhuisen thinks “president of talk” should fire his cabinet

Political parties debated the state of the nation address (Sona) on Monday after President Cyril Ramaphosa promised major changes in his speech last Thursday.
The DA's John Steenhuisen spoke in the joint sitting and said he is not happy with ministers such as Bheki Cele, Ayanda Dlodlo, Lindiwe Sisulu, Gwede Mantashe, Patricia de Lille, Angie Motshekga, Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams, Lindiwe Zulu and Ebrahim Patel. The DA leader said they must go.
“I've tabled a motion of no confidence in your cabinet. If it's not possible for you to do right by the people of SA then we are going to take the burden off your hands and let this house fire them for you”
Steenhuisen says the ministers are not held accountable for their actions.
