New agriculture, forestry and fisheries minister Senzeni Zokwana pays his young cattle herder R800 a month.

Vuyolwethu Ndabambi (21) earns about R26 a day and works every day of the week.

The iron structure stands on a plot of land, which an Eastern Cape village chief has accused Zokwana of occupying illegally.

The land is now the subject of a criminal case with Zokwana due to appear in the Willowvale Magistrates’ Court on June 26.
