Johannesburg - Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor wished her deputy Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi, who is resting in hospital, a speedy recovery.

"Since joining the department, Deputy Minister kaMagwaza-Msibi has been instrumental in promoting science and technology, especially among the youth in remote areas, as demonstrated by a successful imbizo she organised in Ulundi over the weekend," Pandor said in a statement.

"Our prayers are with her during her stay in hospital and we all wish the deputy minister a speedy recovery and urge her to rest and recover."

On Tuesday, ministerial spokesperson Canaan Mdletshe said kaMagwaza-Msibi, 52, who is also the leader of the National Freedom Party, was admitted to a Durban hospital on Monday.

"She has been travelling all over the country. All the travelling has taken its toll on her and she needs to rest."

Asked about kaMagwaza-Msibi's condition, Mdletshe said: "She is fine, she is resting".

NFP secretary general Nhlanhla Khubisa said in an e-mail that kaMagwaza-Msibi's husband Mandla Msibi told him the NFP leader was in hospital for a routine check-up.

"The doctors have advised that she rests and after this thorough check-up she will go back to work."
