The appointment of Bathabile Dlamini as the head of the Women in the Presidency portfolio by President Cyril Ramaphosa has left South Africans baffled.

JOHANNESBURG – The appointment of Bathabile Dlamini as head of the Women in the Presidency portfolio has left South Africans baffled.

Dlamini is the outgoing minister of Social Development and her term has been described as disastrous. The Constitutional Court has ordered her to explain the crisis around the payment of social grants to millions of South Africans and why she should not personally pay for the resulting court case.

Dlamini -- who is president of the ANC Women&39;s League -- has also been called by the SA Human Rights Commission to answer to the state of mental health care in the country. 

She has been criticised for defending Mduduzi Manana, a former deputy minister convicted of assaulting a woman, and for her league&39;s condemnation of the woman who accused Jacob Zuma of raping her.
