The South African Democratic Teachers' Union (SADTU) in Mpumalanga congratulates Comrade Refilwe Tsipane on her election as Premier of Mpumalanga. This appointment substantiates the commitment of the movement to increase the number of women in executive positions.
The union welcomes the appointment of Comrade Bonakele Majuba, the former Deputy President of SADTU as MEC for Education.
We further welcome the appointment of Comrade Busi Shiba, former Provincial Gender Convenor of SADTU in Mpumalanga as Speaker of the Provincial Legislature.
We are confident that their capabilities, skills and experience will enable them to execute their duties as expected.
We also congratulate all MECs appointed by the Premier and all MPLs who have been assigned tasks in the Provincial Legislature.
The union is mindful of the tasks and challenges that lie ahead and hope that the entire collective, deployed by the ANC, shall work with a unity of purpose to improve the lives of the people of Mpumalanga.
