Michael Masutha
Johannesburg – Former Justice and Correctional Services minister Michael Masutha says he enjoys his retirement from public office and looks forward to any other redeployment by the ANC.

“It feels great. I wake up in the morning and I don’t have to carry South Africa on my shoulders any more because others have it laid out for them to do that after me,” Masutha said in an interview with SAfm radio station this week.

Masutha, who hails from Limpopo, became an ANC MP in 1999 after working as head of legal services in the Social Development Department from 1996.

Prior to that, he worked at Lawyers for Human Rights from 1991 after completing his LLB degree at Wits University in 1990.

Masutha particularly took pride in having drafted the child support grant legislation while still at the Social Development Department.
