Keynote Guest Speaker

Hon. Jeff Radebe

Minister in the Presidency

Jeff Radebe is the longest-serving Minister in Cabinet, having served under all South Africa’s post-democracy presidents: Nelson Mandela, Thabo Mbeki, Kgalema Motlanthe and now Jacob Zuma.

A former chairman of the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal, he has been responsible for Transport, Public Enterprises, Public Works and Justice and Constitutional Development. But his latest role, as Minister in the Presidency responsible for monitoring, evaluation and planning, puts him at the centre of government’s deliverables.

Key to the deliverables identified by government is the National Development Plan, which now falls within Radebe’s portfolio. For Radebe, it is important that people understand that the NDP is not owned by government, but that it should be owned by all South Africans.

“The NDP is not only a plan of the government but a plan for the people of South Africa. The President, in his wisdom, made sure that the National Planning Commission is not a government entity but was constituted essentially by people outside of government,” said Radebe at his office at Tuynhuis, next to Parliament.
