Our Basic Education Minister has broken a record of serving the education department for over 10 years.
In many countries, ministers hardly served cabinet for 5 years. Now for a single person to be in a specific department for so long is a record.
Minister Motshekga took the helm as Minister of then then newly formed Department of Basic Education. The department had previously been Education in general when the then President Jacob Zuma divided the department in 2.
Not much can be said when it comes to her performance as she is mostly out of the spotlight but only since Covid she has been visible in the public as she has had to keep the public updated about the Covid restrictions.
It is likely that she will serve until at-least 2024 when the next presidential term kicks in. So that would mean that by the time comes, she will have been the minister of this department for 15 years.
