On 31 October 2010, President Zuma announced a reshuffle in which two Ministers were reassigned, seven were replaced, and seventeen new Deputy Ministers were appointed.[1]

On 24 October 2011, two ministers were removed, two were reassigned to new portfolios, two deputy ministers were promoted to ministers, two deputy ministers were reassigned, and two new deputy ministers were appointed.[2]

On 9 July 2013, President Jacob Zuma fired Minister of Communications Dina Pule because of irregular spending activities. She was replaced by former Deputy Minister of Co-operative Government and Traditional Affairs Yunus Carrim. Zuma also relieved Minister of Human Settlements Tokyo Sexwale, replacing him with Connie September. The Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Richard Baloyi was replaced by Lechesa Tsenoli.
