By Thys Khiba – The newly elected Free State African National Congress (ANC)provincial chairperson and premier Mxolisi Dukwana said opportunities will no longer be given only to those who are politically connected to the governing party in the province.

“Gone are the days when opportunities are given only to loved ones and the politically connected; nepotism and neopatrimonialism shall be a non-existent ethic during this period,” said Dukwana.

This comes after he was sworn in as premier on Friday after
the forced resignation of Sisi Ntombela.

Ntombela was recalled by her party provincial executive committee (PEC) weeks after its provincial elective conference where Dukwana was elected chair.

“I remain available and committed to our revolutionary goals and ready to serve in any deployment the organisation deems fit,” said Ntombela.

During his inaugural address, Dukwana condemned members of the ANC who uses political proximity to accumulate wealth.

This is completely extraneous to the political programme we represent, it is not in sync with unity and renewal about which our successive conferences have been lyrical.

It is not decidedly incongruent with the society we are seeking to build,”Dukwana said.

Dukwana, who is viewed as a staunch of President Cyril Ramaphosa, took time to reflect on the failures of Vrede Dairy project established in Thabo Mofutsanyana.

Former ANC provincial chairperson and premier Ace Magashule and former MEC for Agriculture and Minister of Mineral Resources, Mosebenzi Zwane are linked to the R280-million Estina Dairy project fraud and corruption case.

“Today would not have been possible without the unflinching prayers of Vrede Dairy beneficiaries are whose dream of becoming respectable farmers was thrashed by marauding gangswho profited from their collective misery and the prayers of many men and women of valour whose prayers have seen us through difficult challenges as we navigated this journey,” said Dukwana.

Dukwana is expected to deliver the State of the Province Address  (SOPA) next week.
