STATEMENT BY NORTHWEST PREMIER, PROF TEBOGO JOB MOKGORO, ON THE ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE COMPOSITION OF THE NEW PROVINCIAL EXECUTIVE COUNCIL

 

Following extensive consultation, I am announcing to the people of the North West and South Africa, the new Provincial Executive Council of the 6th Administration; that will assume the responsibility to deliver the quality services that we have promised to our people.

However, allow to reiterate the fact that I will not tolerate any room or space for corruption, looting of state resources or mismanagement thereof; and therefore these Members of the Executive Council have committed themselves to clean governance and quality service delivery.

These are men and women of integrity who have the ability and commitment to accelerate the necessary delivery of services to our people.

We are in agreement with one another as the Executive Council that we are alive to the fact that we are servants of the people and can never be seen as being aloof to the needs of the people of the North West nor should we be behaving in a manner inconsistent with the dictates of our offices.

It, therefore, remains our posture that these appointments are not a privilege or a means to self-enrichment but a calling to serve those that have cast their votes and entrusted us with the responsibility to provide them with a better life.

The composition of this Executive Council is a mirror reflection of the policies and long-standing position of the governing African National Congress in relation to the empowerment of women and youth in the leadership structures that we occupy; as a basic tenet to transform society and address imbalances of the past.

The Executive Council for the 6th Administration is therefore composed as follows:
