Pravin Gordhan

The Minister of Public Enterprises, Pravin Gordhan, has declared his intent to hang up his hat as a politician. Officially making his retirement known, Gordhan has expressed a desire to concentrate on matters of his health and to spend more time with family.

The Department of Public Enterprises confirmed on Monday the seasoned minister’s plans to step down from his pivotal role in government after this administrative term concludes post-elections.

“The Minister’s announcement is reflective of his honest approach to leadership and is made with transparency to ensure that his decision is well communicated with all important parties affected by his role,” the DPE noted. “Minister Gordhan has led the Department of Public Enterprises since 2018, a tenure that followed a string of other critical leadership roles he previously held in government since the advent of our democracy 30 years ago.”

Pravin Gordhan, known for his active role in the anti-apartheid movement, has a storied history with the South African government. He has been a fixture in noteworthy ministerial positions, including as the Minister of Finance and the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs.

Showing appreciation for those he’s worked with, Gordhan acknowledged the support he’s received throughout his service: “Minister Gordhan thanks the Acting Director-General and staff of DPE; the boards and management and employees of the state-owned enterprises (SOEs) and all other stakeholders for their collaboration and contribution to reforming and rebuilding the SOEs.”

Gordhan’s announcement not only emphasises his personal considerations but also places importance on a smooth transition for future leadership at the helm of efforts to reform South Africa’s state-owned enterprises—a task he has championed during his time in office.

With an established legacy and an impactful career in governance coming to a close, Pravin Gordhan’s announcement ushers in a moment of reflection and expectancy as South Africa gears up to embrace change in its political arena. The deliberations and preparations for this transition have now been set in motion, as indicated by the Department of Public Enterprises.
