Member at Portfolio Committee on Tourism (National Assembly Committees)
Alternate Member at Portfolio Committee on Communications (National Assembly Committees)
My interest in politics started way back in 1976 and 1977 when I was young and still attending teaching college. I started teaching in 1980 and then joined a teacher union. As a unionist I became actively involved in politics. From 2000 to 2006 I served as a Councillor in Mbhase Municipality in the Eastern Cape. I then became a Councillor in the Amathole District Municipality and served from 2006 to 2010. In 2011 I was elected to serve as a Member of Parliament.
