The African National Congress Youth League general-secretary has been handed the position of deputy minister of home affairs.

African National Congress Youth League general-secretary Njabul Nzuza is one of the young members appointed to President Cyril Ramaphosa's new Cabinet.

Nzuza has been handed the position of deputy minister of home affairs.

He says he is excited about the appointment and is committed to serving the country.

I am excited for the role that I have been given and we are committed to serving the people of this country to the best of our ability and stretch ourselves further.

Njabulo Nzunza, ANCYL - SG

In his announcement on Wednesday night, Ramaphosa said he has included a significant number of young people as part of his government's commitment to giving young people responsibilities in all sectors of society.

Nzuza applauds the move and says Ramaphosa has reaffirmed his confidence in South Africa's youth.

For us, this has been a long journey, starting from the NGC where 20% was declared. We saw a number of young people going in, in the form of councillors, also coming in terms of Parliament where you have a more youthful delegation from the ANC and today the president reaffirmed that there is confidence in terms of young people.

Njabulo Nzunza, ANCYL - SG

In his analysis of the new Cabinet, political analyst Samadoda Fikeni says the return of David Mahlobo, who is now the deputy minister of human settlements, water and sanitation, came as a surprise.

Given a number of stories that had come around him does suggest that you had a lot of pushback by those who may have wanted the balancing of what used to be factions.
