Minister Pandor conveys her condolences to Ms Zanele Magwaza-Msibi’s family
The Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Dr Naledi Pandor, has conveyed her heartfelt condolences to Ms Zanele Magwaza-Msibi’s family, friends and colleagues, following the announcement of her passing this morning.
Minister Pandor said Ms Magwaza-Msibi played an important role in assisting her to steer the Department of Science and Technology when she became the Deputy Minister in 2014.
“In her, I found a person who was genuinely concerned with the plight of our people, particularly the youth and women from the deep rural parts of our country. From the moment she joined the department, she became, not just the champion but a strong advocate of the use of science and technology to improve the lives of our people,” added Minister Pandor.
Minister Pandor said her thoughts and prayers are with Ms Zanele Magwaza-Msibi’s family during this time of bereavement.
May her soul rest in peace.
