Deputy President David Mabuza says he is humbled by being appointed as the Deputy President of the country.

In an exclusive interview with SABC News, the former premier of Mpumalanga says he is ready to serve the people.

“I’m very humbled to be given this responsibility by the President and I am ready to serve our people with all my strength and the wisdom I have,” says Mabuza.

Mabuza has dismissed allegation of corruption and involvement in political killings as part of the political ploy to taint him. He questioned why those who make the allegations have not approached law enforcement agencies.

The new ministers, deputy ministers including Mabuza, were sworn-in in Cape Town on Tuesday.

“Beyond this point the President is going to assign functions formally to me. So I can’t speculate whether I will be dealing with this or that. So I won’t cross the bridge before I arrive.”
