t is not every day that a minister introduces himself as a dedicated husband and father, so guests were bound to be taken aback when Minister of Agriculture Jabulani Mabuza clearly introduced himself
Ias such on Thursday in a NAMBoard engagement session held at the Summerfield Botanical Gardens.
As guests feasted on goodies of the day, the minister declared his undying love for his family and business.
That was before he made a more sterner address to NAMBoard where he called on the parastatal to up its game.
Minister Mabuza, who was previously the Minister of Commerce, Industry and Trade takes over reins in the Ministry of Agriculture from Moses Vilakati, who is now the Minister of Tourism.
Introducing himself to the big players in the agriculture industry, the minister said: “I would like to declare that I am a married man.
“I love my wife and children. I am also a businessman, and I love doing business,” he said.
