South Africa's president called a cabinet that was 50 percent women on Wednesday, making it one of the few in the world that is "gender balanced". According to the Associated Press, President Cyril Ramaphosa cut the crew members from 36 to 28 by half are women. One of the named women was Patricia De Lille, leader of a newly formed opposition party, now serving as the country's public works and infrastructure minister. Younger members were also folded into the cabinet, as former African National Congress Youth League Vice President Ronald Lamola as Minister of Justice and Correctional Services and Youth Leader Njabulo Nzuza as Deputy Minister of Home Affairs. "The people I appoint today must realize that South African people's expectations have never been greater and that they will have a great responsibility," Ramaphosa said, emphasizing the need for a more "ethical" government. The move comes after Rwanda and Ethiopia also called cabinets that were 50 percent female last year.
