 Cape town: President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, has appointed 40-year-old Ronald Lamola as the new minister of International Relations and Cooperation as part of his cabinet in the 7th administration.

President Cyril Ramaphosa announced his much anticipated Cabinet of the government of national unity (GNU) late Sunday.

Mr.Lamola, who was the former Justice and Constitutional Affairs Minister, is one of the youngest members of the Cabinet.

Mr. Lamola brings a wealth of academic and practical expertise to the role. He obtained his LLB degree from the University of Venda in 2005 and completed his Practical Legal training at the University of South Africa (UNISA) in 2006.

Further enhancing his legal acumen, he holds postgraduate certificates in both corporate law and banking law and financial markets.

His academic journey continued with two master’s degrees from the University of Pretoria.

His first master’s degree, in corporate law, focused on the regulation of property syndication schemes, examining the roles of regulators in the regulation of deposits from the public and the interplay between the Companies Act, Banks Act, and Reserve Bank Act. His second master’s degree, in extractive law in Africa, concentrated on corporate social investment by the mining and energy sectors.

Mr. Lamola’s impressive qualifications and experience will undoubtedly contribute to strengthening South Africa’s international relations and cooperation.
