Zuma announces new ministries

(AFP)

Pretoria - President Jacob Zuma on Sunday reconfigured his Cabinet.

"We have established a ministry of telecommunications and postal services," Zuma said while making his Cabinet announcement.

"Our country has a fast growing telecommunications sector which in 2012 was estimated at being worth R180bn."

The aim of the new ministry was to get more value out of the telecommunications sector, he said.

The communications department had been reconfigured to include more functions.

"We have established a new communications ministry which will be responsible for overarching communication policy and strategy, information dissemination and publicity, as well as the branding of the country abroad," Zuma announced.

"This ministry will be formed out of the following components: the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa, the SA Broadcasting Corporation, Government Communication and Information Systems, Brand SA and the Media Development and Diversity Agency."

The National Planning Commission and the ministry of performance, monitoring and evaluation will be merged.

"This ministry will also continue to be responsible for youth development."
