Almost seven months later, the Cabinet is expected to undergo a third cabinet reshuffle. This follows the disclosure exactly two weeks ago, through the PM's personal physician, that he was suffering from pancreatic cancer.
His doctor, cardiologist Richard Ishmael had said that although the Prime Minister was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer that he was quite capable of holding the reins of PM in his opinion.
