28 September 2015

International Relations and Cooperation Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane took advantage of her presence in New York for the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly to visit the studios of The Daily Show, which premiered on 28 September 2015 under a new host, South African comedian Mr Trevor Noah.

Minister Nkoana-Mashabane conveyed in person the well wishes of the South African government and people to Mr Noah.

Minister Nkoana-Mashabane said: "We want Mr Noah to know that the people of South Africa and indeed the entire African continent are proud of his achievement and that they support him fully as he takes the first steps of what we believe will be a rewarding journey."

Minister Nkoana-Mashabane added that: "Mr Noah is assuming an important global platform through which he will be flying the South African flag high."

“ We are hopeful that many people will look at Mr Noah’s success and take greater interest in the abundance of talent that we have in South Africa in a variety of fields, including entertainment, sports, arts & culture, science and technology, for example.”
