Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane reacted to the announcement of the new cabinet minister with a sharp tongue.

Maimane said that despite the culling of eight ministers, it looked like more of the same from the leading party.

"This looks like a reshuffling of actors playing to the same script," Maimane told eNCA.

Patricia de Lille was a surprise inclusion in President Cyril Ramaphosa’s cabinet and Maimane had had a few choice words for the former DA member.

"Patricia de Lille is now part of the ANC's infrastructure," he continued.

"She now serves in the same cabinet as the team there and we have to hold her accountable the same as we would any other member.”
