Rusternburg – The African National Congress (ANC) Interim Provincial Committee (IPC) has apologized to the North West Premier, Professor Tebogo Job Mokgoro for the manner in which the decision to ‘redeploy’ him may have handled by the ANC Provincial leadership.
“We particularity wish to apologize for the discomfort and inconvenience that may have been caused by the manner in which the decision was communicated to him,” said ANC IPC Spokesperson Kenny Morolong.
The North West ANC’s IPC appears to be facing a conundrum over the resignation of incumbent premier, Job Mokgoro. This as it has emerged in Mahikeng that Mokgoro is yet to tender his resignation letter, as a member of the Provincial Legislature, after his term in office as premier expired on Sunday.
IPC coordinator, Hlomani Chauke, says the resignation process is underway. Chauke says Mokgoro’s resignation letter will be received via the office of the Provincial Legislature speaker, Susana Dantjie, given that Mokgoro is a member of the legislature.
In a statement, the IPC expressed its profound appreciation to Mokgoro for accepting the ANC decision to redeploy him.
“We thank Cde Job for his sterling work during his tenure as Premier of the North West Province. We reiterate our assertion that his administrative skills are not lost to the people of our province and the ANC will continue to benefit from them,” said Morolong.
In response to the announce of the new Premier Bushy Maape who is appointed by the IPC to take over Mokgoro’s job, the office of the Premier confirmed Mokgoro is still the Premier of the province.
