Reaction is pouring in following the sacking of Sicelo Shiceka and Gwen Mahlangu-Nkabinde as Cabinet Ministers.
The pair stands accused of various graft charges, and Zuma has been under pressure to deal with the allegations for weeks.
The Democratic Alliance says the sackings are better late than never while the Independent Democrats say this sends a clear message to government officials.
The African Christian Democratic Party also welcomed the announcement.
Spokesperson Steve Swarts says Zuma’s decision was long overdue.
