Gauteng Premier David Makhura's spokesperson, Vuyo Mhaga, says Dr Kgosientso Ramokgopa will be redeployed following his resignation as MEC of Economic Development and Agriculture.
Morakane Mosupyoe has replaced Ramokgopa. Mosupyoe's deployment follows a directive from African National Congress (ANC) that Makhura comply with the party's gender quota, as far as his MECs go.
In keeping with the ANC’s commitment to ensure that women are well represented in executive structures I have appointed Ms. Morakane Mosupyoe as the new MEC for @GautengDED. She will continue with our vision of growing the economy our province. #GrowingGautengTogether pic.twitter.com/QIG9F2M04a— David Makhura (@David_Makhura) October 11, 2019
