The Presidency has dismissed media reports that Communications Minister Dina Pule could soon lose her job.

"The Presidency has noted the carefully orchestrated rumour published by most Sunday newspapers today that President [Jacob] Zuma is to relieve the Minister of Communications...of her duties and reshuffle his cabinet," Presidency spokesman Mac Maharaj said in a statement on Sunday night.

"The rumour and speculation are mischievous and will not distract government from the main activity this coming week, the State of the Nation Address by the President."

The Sunday Times reported that Pule could lose her job following scandals involving her boyfriend, Phosane Mngqibisa.

It reported that talk within the African National Congress and government circles was that Pule will be sacked as part of a cabinet reshuffle.
