CAPE TOWN - Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has been sworn in as an African National Congress Member of Parliament.

She is replacing former ANC MP Pule Mabe, who resigned earlier this month.

The ceremony took place behind closed doors in the office of deputy Speaker Lechesa Tsenoli a short while ago.

It's been five years since Dlamini-Zuma was last an MP.

She declined to speculate on whether this was the first step to a Cabinet post.
