Pandor appointed acting Home Affairs Minister

President Jacob Zuma has appointed the Minister of Science and Technology Naledi Pandor as acting Minister of Home Affairs.

This comes as Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma prepares to take up her position as Chairperson of the AU Commission in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, later this month.

She has resigned from her position as Minister of Home Affairs.

“I wish to thank Dr Dlamini Zuma most sincerely for the remarkable contribution that she made in the work of Parliament as a Member of the National Assembly and the lasting impact she made in the National Executive as a Minister in different portfolios since 1994.

“She definitely served the country with distinction in all the tasks that she was charged with, in our quest to better the lives of our people,” said President Zuma. – SAnews.gov.za
