To quote Ramawela, ‘Minister Tokozile Xasa has served as Deputy Minister of Tourism since 2009, and is thus familiar with the dynamics and issues in the sector.  During her tenure as Deputy Minister, she amassed the necessary knowledge and experience which should stand her in good stead in her new role.’
