Fired by Mbeki, but Nozi is still in office, according to at least two government websites, the GCIS and the
Maniacal Beetroot, Drunken Kleptomania and Inadvertent Genocide Ministry Ministry of Health.
“Deputy Minister of Health of the Republic of South Africa since 29 April 2004”, the GCIS tells us in its potted profile, noting as its own source, the “Deputy Ministry of Health”.
The Ministry of Health, meanwhile, also still lists Nozi as Deputy Minister of Health.
Evidence of a hidden cabal of Nozi supporters within government? More likely, evidence that those attempting to wrestle the sprawling, increasingly tired-looking hydra of government websites are losing their grip on the behemoth.
