SOS Coalition: The new Cabinet / Minister of Communications

As you are probably all aware the new Minister of Communications is General Siphiwe Nyanda, ex-head of the South African National Defence Force. The Deputy Minister of Communications is Dina Pule. She was an MEC in Mpumalanga. She held the Agriculture and the Culture, Sport and Recreation portfolios.
SOS (Save our SABC - Kate Skinner) will be setting up meetings with the new Minister and Deputy Minister as soon as possible. Kate will keep us updated on that. Also, apparently we will know in the next days who the head of the Communications Portfolio Committee is. Will also keep you updated on that.
You can read the official statement of the 10th of May by President Jacob Zuma on the Appointment of the New Cabinet here.
