The World

South African President Pieter W. Botha appointed two nonwhites as government deputy ministers, effective July 1. Soobramdney Naicker, an Asian, will become deputy minister of environment affairs, and Luwellyn Landers, a mixed-race Colored, will become deputy minister of population development. Deputy ministers are not Cabinet members, but an Asian and a Colored are already Cabinet ministers without portfolio.
