MEC of Economic Development and Agriculture in Gauteng Kgosientso Ramokgopa has resigned. Gauteng Premier David Makhura has had to reshuffle his cabinet and drop one male as per the ANC NEC resolutions.
The ANC resolved that where the Premier is male, 60 percent of the executive council had to be female.
Morakane Mosupyoe will take over from Ramokgopa. She was the Chairperson of the Social Development Portfolio Committee at the Gauteng Provincial Legislature.
Makhura’s office said Ramokgopa’s new role will be announced soon.
