Presidency rejects mischievous rumour

10 February 2013

The Presidency has noted the carefully orchestrated rumour published by most Sunday newspapers today that President Zuma is to relieve the Minister of Communications, Ms Dina Pule, of her duties and reshuffle his cabinet (see Sunday Independent report).

The rumour and speculation are mischievous and will not distract government from the main activity this coming week, the State of the Nation Address by the President.
