The deliberations followed extensive interviews and vetting to ensure that suitable candidates are nominated. The Committee is satisfied with the calibre of the candidates that have been recommended and, should the National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces agree with the Committee’s recommendations, the candidates will strengthen the governance system within the institution.
The Committee unanimously recommended the following names:

3. Ms Zandile Majozi
4. Mr Ndumiso Mokako
5. Mr Kenneth Morolong
