RE: HUMAN SETTLEMENTS PORTFOLIO COMMITTEE WELCOMES NEW MEC
The Chairperson of the KwaZulu-Natal Legislature’s Portfolio Committee on Human Settlements Honourable Linda Hlongwa-Madlala has congratulated the newly appointed MEC for Human Settlements Ntuthuko “Jomo” Sibiya.
Hlongwa-Madlala said the committee welcomes Sibiya and strongly believes that they will have an excellent working relationship.
Sibiya, is a seasoned politician and a senior leader in the province. He was the Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Education before his appointment as MEC. Prior to that, he served in a number of other portfolio committees.
The changes to the provincial cabinet were necessitated by the passing of former Transport MEC Bheki Ntuli in January this year due to Covid-19 complications. Former Human Settlements and Public Works MEC Peggy Nkonyeni has now been moved to Transport and Community Safety.
Hlongwa-Madlala also wished Nkonyeni well in her new responsibilities saying the committee had a good working relationship with her.
“We are looking forward to a very good working relationship with the new MEC and his team. We wish him all the best,” said Hlongwa-Madlala.
