Health MEC Gillion Mashego has  been redeployed to the Department of Public Works Roads with former Public Works Roads and Transport MEC Sasekani Manzini, taking over the Health Dpartment which is in disarray. Only Mashego is affected and other members of the executive are remaining in their respective portfolios.

Premier Refilwe Mtshweni said she was not succumbing to pressure by organised labour, but was exercising her prerogative to deploy members of the executive according to their strengths in an effort to maintain  stability in the provincial administration.
