Lamola graduated from the University of Venda with a LLB in 2005.

He also boasts numerous post-graduate qualifications, including two master’s degrees from the University of Pretoria.

Lamola also boasts political pedigree as he previously acted as the deputy president of the ANC youth league.

He went off the political radar for a while, but resurfaced as one of the very few voices in the ANC, calling for then-president, Jacob Zuma, to step down following the Constitutional Court judgement.

Briefly.co.za also noted how South Africans have taken to social media to support the new cabinet minister.

Lamola shared a video of him taking his oath of office via twitter (@RonaldLamola) and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.
