South Africa's new Cabinet appointments

I was expecting the Minister of Communications to be Roy Padayachie, the former Communications deputy minister. Instead, former South Africa National Defence Force (SANDF) chief, Siphiwe Nyanda, was appointed instead. This will definitely be a surprise to the industry. I sincerely hope that Nyanda does not slow down progress, the way the previous minister, Ivy-Matsepe Casaburri, did.
