Zuma appoints new Cabinet Ministers
Naledi Pandor takes over from president's former wife as Minister of Home Affairs
Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor has been appointed by President Jacob Zuma as Minister of Home Affairs.
Deputy Science Minister Derek Hanekom will take over as Minister of Science and Technology.
“I congratulate Ms Pandor and Mr Hanekom on their appointments,” Zuma said in a statement.
“They have distinguished themselves in their current portfolios and I am confident that they will do exceptionally well in their new responsibilities as well. I wish them all the best.”
Home Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma resigned from her position last month to head up the African Union commission in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
