NFP leader appointed deputy science minister
Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi will be sworn in at the Union Buildings tomorrow.
CAPE TOWN - President Jacob Zuma has appointed National Freedom Party (NFP) leader Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi as Deputy Science and Technology Minister.
KaMagwaza-Msibi, who was sworn in as a National Assembly Member of Parliament last month, will be sworn in at the Union Buildings in Pretoria on Friday.
The NFP leader was national chairperson of the Inkatha Freedom Party when she left to launch her own party three years ago.
The NFP's success in the 2011 local government elections led to her party working in coalition with the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal.
In the National and Provincial elections held on 7 May, the NFP won national representation with six seats in the National Assembly and one in the National Council of Provinces.
