- Ronald Lamola was recently appointed by President Cyril Ramaphosa to serve in his cabinet
- Lamola will serve as South Africa’s Minister of Justice and Correctional Services
- Lamola boasts an impressive educational background and South Africans gave him a huge vote of confidence via social media
President Cyril Ramaphosa promised to shake things up and fulfilled that promise based on his cabinet announcement.
One of the fresh faces appointed was that of Ronald Lamola.
Lamola will serve Mzansi as the new Minister of Justice and Correctional Services.
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.
Tweeps commended Lamola and expressed the high level of faith they have in him.
Mzansi’s people also called on Lamola to implement measures to deter people from a life of crime.
