Another reason why the cabinet resigned
I had not realised this until now, but the ministers who resigned, will not be entitled to vote in the national assembly this morning. This is significant, as whilst saying, “we are willing to serve”, they in no way want to anybody to be able to point fingers at them saying you voted the new administration in!
While this will not affect the result, they are clearly expressing their heart issues and demonstrating their unhappiness at the way in which Mbeki was relieved of his position.
In effect they are actually saying we will serve the country, but not the leader?
