The Chairperson for the Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises, Ms Lungi Mnganga-Gcabashe, welcomes the appointment of the interim board at Transnet.
The Minister of Public Enterprises, Mr Pravin Gordhan, announced the appointment of five interim board members at Transnet, with Dr Popo Molefe as the interim board chairperson. They are Mr Louis Zeuner, Ms Ramasela Ganda, Ms Ursula Fikelepi, Mr Edward Kieswetter and Ms Dimakatso Matshoga.
“Dr Molefe’s appointment is a serious attempt by the Minister to tackle corruption and to turn around Transnet to deal with the challenges the freight utility company has been battling with,” said Ms Mnganga-Gcabashe.
The committee will work closely with the new board to deal with the challenges that have been in the public domain and to ensure that the company improves, Ms Mnganga-Gcabashe said.
