About Pinky Sharon Kekana

Ms Pinky Kekana was born in Bela-Bela. Ms Kekana has completed a Bachelor of Arts Degree (specializing in Education and teaching). Ms Kekana's experience as a secondary school teacher fuelled her passion for education and South African’s young people.

On 21 May 2014, Ms Kekana was elected to be a Member of the National Assembly. As a Member of Parliament, Ms Kekana served on the Standing Committee on Finance and Ad Hoc Committee on the Filling of Vacancies in the Commission for Gender Equality

In 2015 she was elected to the ANC Women's League National Executive Committee and was subsequently deployed to be the Secretary-General of the Pan African Women Organisation (PAWO). In her capacity as Secretary-General of PAWO, Ms Kekana was committed to ensuring all African women, particularly girl children, are empowered.

Ms Kekana serves as Deputy Minister of Communications and as someone from a rural town, Ms Kekana understands and recognizes the vital importance of bridging the digital divide between people living, working and travelling in regional and remote parts of the country and those in metropolitan cities.

Our society is rapidly moving towards using cutting edge technology and more people are getting access to the internet year on year. Ms Kekana believes that rural South Africans should have access to 21st-century communications to run their businesses, complete their studies and connect with family and friends.
