South African President Cyril Ramaphosa informed his closest aides that he’s not planning any major changes to his cabinet before the governing African National Congress’s elective conference in December, Business Day reported, citing people it didn’t identify.

Speculation over imminent changes to the cabinet increased when Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana was accused of sexual assault earlier this month. He has denied any wrongdoing.
