New Energy Minister David Mahlobo has been a loyal confidant of President Jacob Zuma ever since he was appointed minister of state security in 2014. He has followed the head of state almost everywhere he goes. These images are just some from the last six months, showing Mahlobo shadowing Zuma on local and international trips. They were all harvested from the Presidency's Facebook page.
