About Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula

A special sitting of the National Assembly (NA) elected Ms Nosiviwe Noluthando Mapisa-Nqakula as new Speaker of the House on Thursday 19 August 2021.

Ms Mapisa-Nqakula, who hails from the Eastern Cape, is a seasoned legislator having been a Member of Parliament from 1999. She has held various positions, including being the Chief whip of the ANC in 2001 and Chairperson of the Joint Standing on Intelligence and Defence. Ms Mapisa-Nqakula has served as a member of the Executive for nearly two-decades, as a Deputy and Minister of Home Affairs, Correctional Services, and Defence and Military Veterans.

Gender and women issues are close to her heart, and she was a founding member of the East London Domestic Workers Association in the 1980s. A fearless anti-apartheid struggle activist, Ms Mapisa-Nqakula has dedicated her time and efforts to the liberation of the oppressed people of South Africa. She served in various structures of the ANC and was a National organiser, Secretary General and President of the Women's League and member of its National Executive Committee of the ANC.

She is the seventh Speaker since the dawn of democracy, six of whom were women Speaker’s.

In her inaugural speech as the Speaker, Ms Mapisa-Nqakula described Parliament as the last line of defence of the country's constitutional democracy. She urged all parties to collaborate in service to the people of South Africa, and pledged to ensure that fairness and integrity of Parliament is protected and promoted without fear of favour.
