Thabang Samson Phathakge Makwetla (born 18 May 1957) is the current Deputy Minister of Justice and Correctional Services in South Africa with special responsibility for Correctional Services, former Deputy Minister of Defence and Military Veterans and former Premier of Mpumalanga. He is a member of the African National Congress (ANC). Inside of the ANC, he is a supporter of former South African President Thabo Mbeki. As a consequence of this support and Jacob Zuma's election as ANC President at the 2007 party conference, Makwetla will lose his position of regional chairperson of Mpumalanga.
