South African President Jacob Zuma is considering making changes to his Cabinet if he survives a motion of no confidence in Parliament, according to two officials of the ruling African National Congress who have knowledge of the matter. Minerals Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane, Energy Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi and Mduduzi Manana, the deputy minister of Higher Education, may be removed from the administration, according to one of the people who asked not to be named because he isn’t an official spokesperson. Zuma’s spokesperson Bongani Ngqulunga didn’t answer a call to his mobile phone or immediately respond to a voice message.
