Mzansi wants Nosiviwe out, here's who many think is suitable to replace her 1It’s not a secret that several South Africans have raised disappointment and serious concern about Defence minister, Nosiviwe Maphisa-Nqakula. The public vote of no confidence against the minister comes after she exposed her incompetence during the free Zuma violence. Many went as far as digging her qualifications and found her unfit to handle the crucial position she has been delegated to be in charge of. As a result, desperate calls have been made to president Cyril Ramaphosa to have Maphisa-Nqakula removed from office.

But the shocking part is who some think will be a suitable replacement for the “incompetent” minister. According to a concerned South who took to social media to address the president, UDM’s Bantu Holomisa is the perfect candidate. “Dear Mr President @CyrilRamaphosa. In the next cabinet reshuffle, consider appointing Gen. Bantu Holomisa as a Minister of Defence and Military Veterans, you know him very well,” Maso wrote to the president.

To my surprise, many others are agreeing with Maso’s proposal. “I have no doubt that Gen Bantu Holomisa has the best interests of this country at heart, and that he would serve with great pride, dignity and excellence. He will not be bought or sold at the expense of our great country,” another tweep suggested. Let’s not forget the coup attempt that Holomisa was involved in back in 1987. Holomisa and the army seized power in Transkei in 1987 and set up a government that had close ties with the African National Congress, the main black opposition group in South Africa.In those days, he had charged that the South African government or other elements were plotting a coup against his government.

But this would be the death of the United Democratic Movement that Holomisa is leading. Would Ramaphosa give such a big post to opposition?

Holomisa’s background is more impressive though. Unlike Maphisa-Nqakula, the UDM leader has reference in the defence area. He joined the Transkei Defence Force in 1976 and had become a Brigadier by 1985. There are suggestions that Ramaphosa should actually appoint a younger person for the position, but military needs experience not young blood.

If the General would accept it, would he be a suitable candidate for the position in your opinion?
