Durban – KwaZulu-Natal Premier Nomusa Dube-Ncube has announced her new cabinet.
Mbali Frazer takes over the portfolio of Education from Kwazi Mshengu, while Sipho Hlomuka moves from the Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) to the Department of Transport, Community Safety and Liaison.
Another notable change is former Premier Sihle Zikalala's move to Cogta following his resignation last week. Ravi Pillay's resignation from the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism left a gap open and this has been filled by Siboniso Duma. He is also the Leader of Government Business.
Speaking at the Provincial Executive Council, the premier said the next few months would be characterised by hard work and humble service to the people of KZN
“Importantly, as the new executive council we are all aware that this province is blessed with many capable leaders across all sectors of society who have a vision for a prosperous future. However, what is urgently needed is to choose the right path that will enable all of us to reach our destination.
