C10) 15/4/10: Changes in Vice President's Office to enhance delivery

In the context of any confusion that may have been caused by a recent press report this Office wishes to confirm and clarify that Dr. John Mothibi has been recently appointed as Permanent Secretary in the Office of the Vice President.

Dr. Mothibi is assisting His Honour the Vice President in the delivery of the core duties assigned to him by His Excellency the President.

These responsibilities include:

Driving Government's economic diversification initiatives, a responsibility that further includes overseeing the progress of the Agriculture, Diamond, Education, Health, Innovation, and Transport Hubs;

Driving project delivery across Government;

Evaluating of the performance of Ministers and Permanent Secretaries; and

Driving poverty eradication efforts.

Dr. Mothibe's appointment in the Vice President's office may be seen as a reflection of magnitude of the above responsibilities as well as the urgency of this Office's commitment towards meeting them.

In this respect it is in keeping with this Office's overarching commitment to Delivery.

We are further pleased to report that, to further enhance delivery, the Vice President's Office has also been recently joined by Mr. Masego Ramakgathi, whose duties will include acting as the Office's new media liaison.
