Durban - Former president Jacob Zuma on Thursday said he believed Mineral Resources and Energy deputy minister Bavelile Hlongwa was going to fix many wrongs at the department.
Zuma spoke at Hlongwa’s memorial service held at the Durban City Hall.
“When she was appointed into that department I said 'Something good has happened'.
“I knew that she was going to fix the department because I always knew that there was something wrong with this department,” said Zuma.
Prior to his departure to Zimbabwe for the memorial service of former president Robert Mugabe, Hlongwa had approached Zuma at the University of Limpopo, where Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma was being inaugurated as the chancellor, and expressed concern about the department.
