MEC Kgosientso Ramokgopa to be redeployed following Gauteng cabinet reshuffle
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.
