Pretoria (South Africa), May 11 (ANI): Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, the ex-wife of former South African President Nelson Mandela, has been left out of President Jacob Zuma’s Cabinet.

According to the South African Press Association (SAPA) Winnie Mandela, 72, was widely tipped to take up a senior Cabinet post, after topping the ANC’s National Executive Committee list at the party’s Polokwane conference.

Former unpopular health minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang, former science and technology minister Mosibudi Mangena and former defence minister Charles Nqakula were also left out.

Zuma named 34 ministries, compared to the 28 in former president Kgalema Motlanthe’s Cabinet. (ANI)
