As Africa’s economy becomes more sophisticated, South African businesses are increasingly looking outward to expand their markets. This has increased the demands for foreign labour and the migration of expertise across borders. Minister of Home Affairs Malusi Gigaba is speaking at Regenesys Business School on 19 January at the future of Pan-African business.
The discussion will focus on the current and future role that The Department ofHome Affairs will play in South Africa’s Pan-African economic success. Minister
Gigaba is a teacher by profession and an academic, whose commitment to using education as tool for social upliftment finds its expression in his work.
He had an active political career in the student movement and first joined the ranks of parliament in 1999 in various posts before becoming the Minister of HomeAffairs in 2014. Minister Gigaba’s key priorities include completing the modernisation of the Department, improving client service, reviewing the international migration policy, establishing an effective border management agency (BMA) and upgrading six key ports of entry.
About Minister Gigaba: He graduated with a Bachelor of Pedagogics (Education) degree in 1991 and followed it with a Master of Artsdegree in Social Policy, majoring in Urban Affairs and Policy in 1993. In 1995, he presented his Masters’ research findings at the First International Geography Conference held at the University of Durban-Westville on the 10th-14th July 1995.
When the liberation movements were unbanned and the ANC Youth League re-launched, Minister Gigaba joined its ranks and became actively involved in the process of rebuilding particularly youth political organisations in the country, and in youth political mobilisation during the negotiations period leading to the 1994 general elections.
During his ANCYL Presidency, the University of Havana in Cuba recognized his contribution and activism by awarding him the highest order given to student and youth leaders in Cuba, the Jose’ Antonio Echeverrias Medal in 2002.
