Nzimande, once a staunch Zuma loyalist, has been vocal, along with the SA Communist Party, about the president resigning. She was replaced by former state security minister David Mahlobo, who was trained in Russian Federation before taking up the intelligence post in 2014.

President Jacob Zuma announced a cabinet reshuffle on Monday morning, the second this year.

The Sunday Times quoted an unnamed source as saying that the Russian "visit was to deliver what many of us believe to be the final warning to the South African authorities".

Former minister of energy and now minister of home affairs Nkhensani Kubayi was allegedly axed from her position because at a meeting with the Russians, she was reluctant to commit to signing the deal, stating reasons varying from being new to the department to having to understand the implications to the country of such a deal. This group does not normally leave Russian Federation.

In the short time Mahlobo has been in the energy post, he has already practically confirmed that government will continue to push forward with the Nuclear deal with Russian Federation. "These are members of the military, police and intelligence", a source told the weekly newspaper.

This week, Rian le Roux, chief economist at Old Mutual Investment told Fin24 that the latest Cabinet reshuffle was a clear attempt to put nuclear power plans back on track and only made matters worse, even if nuclear power is "still far in the future'".

It's suggested that Zuma had wanted to appoint Faith Muthambi for the post but the Russians convinced Zuma to consider Mahlobo instead.

"South Africa recognises the role of nuclear power in ensuring security of energy supply and meeting the challenge of climate change", he said.
