The Minister of Arts & Culture, Mr Nathi Mthethwa, is delighted to learn that comedian and TV personality, Trevor Noah, will replace Jon Stewart on the popular 'Daily Show'. 

Trevor Noah is a highly gifted young artist who epitomises artistic freedom of expression and its role in social cohesion. No doubt this is a big global development for Mr Noah's career. Above all, Noah's achievement makes a resounding statement that South Africa has the artistic talent of international stature and calibre.

We wish to congratulate Noah on this significant achievement . Over the years Noah has proved that laughter is the best medicine. In fact, he has helped our country and its people to find healing, including through laughing at themselves.

South Africa is a microcosm of the world and there is no doubt that a global audience will find resonance in his humour.
