President Cyril Ramaphosa will today, Thursday 22 November 2018, announce changes to the National Executive, in a statement to media at the Union Buildings, Pretoria, at 15h00.

These changes have been occasioned by the passing away in September 2018 of the Minister of Environmental Affairs, Ms Edna Molewa, and the more recent resignation of the Minister of Home Affairs, Mr Malusi Gigaba.

Media should note that questions will not be taken after the announcement, as this event is ceremonial in nature.

Media representatives with valid press cards are invited to attend the announcement in the Media Centre, Room 153, in the East Wing of the Union Buildings.

Media representatives are also asked to dress appropriately for this event, in line with the decorum maintained at the Presidency.

Issued by the Presidency of the Republic of South Africa
