Deputy Minister Enoch Godongwana quits
Johannesburg - The deputy minister of economic development, Enoch Godongwana, has resigned from his position in order to pursue personal interests, the presidency said on Sunday.
Spokesperson Mac Maharaj said Godongwana's last day would be on Monday.
"The President has accepted the resignation and thanked the deputy minister for his dedicated service and duty to his portfolio and to the national executive in general," he said in a statement.
Godongwana is a member of the ANC's economic transformation committee.
He was previously the deputy minister of public enterprises and had served as a member of the provincial legislature in the Eastern Cape.
President Jacob Zuma said Godongwana's work experience and expertise would not be entirely lost to the public but would be used elsewhere in pursuing the goal of a meaningful economic transformation.
