Phumla Williams on getting nod for top government communications position
After eight years as the acting director-general of the Government Communication and Information Systems department, Phumla Williams has finally been appointed in the position.

She joins Bongani Bingwa to talk about her appointment and says as human beings, we need to forget that certain things happened so that we save our souls.
