SADTU Free State Welcomes Appointment of new MEC for Education

16 March 2023

The South African Democratic Teachers’ Union (SADTU) in Free State welcomes the appointment of MEC for Education, Cde Makalo Mohale by the Premier. We believe that the Premier has made a good choice in appointing MEC Makalo Mohale as he has been the MEC for the Department of Economic, Small Business Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs (DESTEA) and understands the operation of government.

He brings with him the knowledge and experience he acquired in DESTEA that could benefit the education sector, which is not new to him as he was once appointed as MEC for Education on an acting capacity in the absence of the incumbent, the late MEC Tate Makgoe. Cde Mohale is a seasoned leader of the ANC who understands education policies of the movement that government must implement. We have full confidence in his capabilities and competence that he demonstrated in DESTEA to improve education.

As SADTU we are looking forward to a cordial, yet robust working relationship with the MEC that will enhance labour peace in the interest of education in the province.
