Staff Reporter

Minister of Science and Technology Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane says that she has the full support of the president and the deputy president with regards to championing her department’s portfolio.

“The leadership understands what needs be done. Even the deputy president (David Mabuza) accompanied me to our centre in Hermanus (Western Cape where the South African National Space Agency is located).

“We are one of two [space agency centres] that were awarded for aviation space work; the second is shared between China and Russia,” she said.

The minister added that she is guaranteed her portfolio is safe in terms of the projects and work started.

“I think where we are, we will be able to expand. Science, Technology and Innovation will be able to assist us to create new industries.”
