The Minister's focus will be on government’s key flagship projects, Operation Vala Zonke - the pothole patching programme and the Labour Intensive S’hamba Sonke project.
The National Department of Transport introduced the two projects in order to improve and maintain the quality of the country’s road network by patching and fixing potholes and using labour-intensive methods such as paving to construct and maintain gravel and rural roads.
