South Africa’s Foreign Minister Naledi Pandor Plans To Leave Public Office

The celebrated South African Minister of International Relations Naledi Pandor said on Feb. 10 that she would “in any case not hold public office” when the new government was formed. She said so at an ANC event in Cape Town in support of ANC Member of Provincial Legislature Khalid Sayed, the party’s premier (governor) candidate in the Western Cape, according to City Press (Johannesburg). She did not say that she is leaving politics, or that she is leaving the ANC. Those matters have been left unclear by her statement.

(Is it possible that she might change her mind if the new government is sufficiently oriented toward the pro-BRICS, pro-Palestinian foreign policy she has been building?)
