Undersecretary takes over SWADE
MBABANE – Bongani Masuku, the Undersecretary in the Ministry of Agriculture, has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer of SWADE – albeit on acting capacity.
Agriculture Minister, Clement Dlamini, , yesterday confirmed Masuku’s appointment.
"He assumed his duties last week and he’s expected to be at the helm of the organisation for a very short period," Dlamini said.
Masuku, according to the minister, steps into the shoes of Chief Financial Officer Bafana Dlamini, who held the CEO post on acting basis for a period of three months.
Bafana’s three-month contract lapsed at the end of April.
As acting CEO, Bafana replaced Gugulethu Hlophe, who is currently on special leave pending finalisation of her disciplinary case.
Cabinet, according to a highly-placed source, was supposed to approve the appointment of Trevor Shongwe as acting CEO for the parastatal yesterday.
Shongwe’s substantive position is that of Chief Water Engineer in the Ministry of Natural Resources and Energy.
"His first major mandate would be to work closely with the Board of Directors towards the recruitment of the substantive CEO," stated the informant.
SWADE is an acronym for the Swaziland Water and Agricultural Development Enterprise.
The parastatal falls directly under the Ministry of Agriculture.
