GOOD Party leader Patricia de Lille says she is deeply honoured and humbled to serve as a minister in South Africa’s new Cabinet.

President Cyril Ramaphosa has appointed De Lille as Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure.

De Lille recently formed the GOOD Party following her resignation as Cape Town Mayor as a result of a fall-out with the Democratic Alliance (DA).

She says she has fought for justice for more than 40 years and has no plans to stop now.

She has pledged to continue to lead her party and strive for a responsible, accountable and compassionate government.

De Lille says it is now time for South Africans to demonstrate that they can rise above party political differences.
