List of Government Ministries in South Africa (2021)


The Republic of South Africa headed by President Cyril Ramaphosa operates diverse government ministries that govern the country, and also provide aids for the masses in both the rural and urbanized areas. These ministries are reviewed and established by the president under a framework provided by the constitution. They employ thousands of workers each year or working session, and the citizens take delight in working for the government via these ministries. Government ministries pay handsomely and their recruitment processes remain the most formal. The stipulated age for all prospective recruits MUST be between 18years and 29years old.
