ADM APPOINTS ITS FIRST EVER WOMAN CFO

MEDIA RELEASE 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 
 
ADM APPOINTS ITS FIRST EVER WOMAN CFO
 
 
ADM HEADQUARTERS, Wednesday, 1 March 2017.
 
 
The Amathole District Municipality Council appointed Ms Nomthandazo Ntshanga as the municipality’s first ever woman Chief Financial Officer (CFO). This historic decision was taken at a Special Council meeting held at Calgary Conference Centre and Museum, in East London this morning.
 
The position became vacant after the previous CFO Mr. Nkosinathi Soga resigned.
 
Mrs. Ntshanga holds a B-Tech in Cost & Management Accounting from the University of South Africa, a certificate in GRAP Implementation and another in Municipal Finance Management from the University of Stellenbosch and University of Fort Hare respectively. It is noteworthy to indicate that her experience in local government spans over 14 years, with 10 years as a Chief Financial Officer in various municipalities.
 
Mrs. Ntshanga is the first woman to ascend to this critical position since the ushering in of the new local government dispensation.
 
Speaking on behalf of the ADM, the Executive Mayor, Cllr Winnie Nomfusi Nxawe said Ntshanga’s appointment comes at a crucial time when the institution received its 5th unqualified audit opinion.
 
“As ADM we have made history by obtaining an unqualified audit opinion for the past 5 years. Mrs. Ntshanga’s appointment as CFO, becomes crucial to maintain good financial management for the public purse that the institution is entrusted with.”
 
“On behalf of the ADM council, I wish the new incumbent well in her position and would like to assure her of our support to ensure she executes her duties with ease” said Nxawe.
 
According to the Chairperson of the panel Mr. Chris Magwangqana, “the appointment of the new CFO was carried out in full view of the provisions of Municipal Legislative Framework and Constitution of the Republic of South Africa.”
 
In her previous positions, Mrs. Ntshanga was responsible for the improvement of favourable audit outcomes in Lukhanji, KSD and Mnquma local municipalities respectively.

OPERATION PHAKISA: AGRICULTURE, RURAL DEVELOPMENT, AND LAND REFORM KEY MESSAGES

President Jacob Zuma will on 24 February 2017 launch the Operation Phakisa for Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development. The broad aim of the Operation Phakisa is to stimulate growth, foster job creation and instil transformation along the agriculture and rural development value chain.

 

Operation Phakisa is derived from Malaysia’s Big Fast Results Methodology which that country used successfully to achieve rapid economic transformation. It was introduced in South Africa two years ago to improve performance in various sectors.

 

It is an initiative designed to fast track the implementation of solutions on critical delivery issues highlighted in the National Development Plan (NDP) and also forms part of our Nine Point Plan to reignite growth and boost job creation. Since then, Operation Phakisa has been launched focussing in various sectors such as oceans economy and mining.

 

The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF), and the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform (DRDLR) recently competed a six month consultation process to finalise the objectives for the five week Operation Phakisa Lab.
