Ms Dina Pule

Dina Pule, Minister of Communications from South Africa

Ms Dina Deliwe Pule is one of the strongest leaders in the country with a deep sense of duty to her fellow citizens and a strong commitment to service delivery.

She is driven by a passion to see her community and the country achieve social development and economic growth. As the Minister of Communications, she is at the forefront of the government’s effort to make communication tools affordable and easily accessible to every citizen and making sure that local businesses are able to use these tools to be globally competitive.

Born outside Hazyview in Mpumalanga in Mhala District during apartheid, Ms Pule’s eyes were opened to gross social injustice by discrepancy between her lived experiences compared to the history lessons they were taught at school. This realization pushed her towards civil activism and she found a home in the policy directions of the ANC.

She was recruited by the underground structures of the ANC because her region was a gateway to Mozambique.

Ms Pule recruited and worked with a number of comrades while at school and college.

Her commitment to justice and the welfare of others saw her become one of the founder members of the South Africa National Students Congress. She was also a founder member of the then Eastern Transvaal Women’s Union in 1990.
