Cabinet posts to be announced today

Cabinet appointments to the national security and tourism and transport portfolios will go ahead today.

The replacements for Wayne Caines and Zane DeSilva, who both quit Cabinet last week over a public breach of Covid-19 health restrictions, were expected to be announced yesterday, but were delayed.

David Burt, the Premier, announced on July 9 that the ceremony was planned for Government House yesterday.

But a government spokeswoman confirmed last night that the swearing-in of the new ministers had been held over for 24 hours.

Diallo Rabain, the education minister, has been Acting Minister of National Security and Wayne Furbert, the Minister for the Cabinet Office, took the reins at tourism and transport on an interim basis.
