Communications committee welcomes National Assembly’s adoption of MDDA candidates
The Portfolio Committee on Communications welcomes the National Assembly’s (NA) adoption of the Committee’s recommendation that Ms Palesa Kadi, Mr Thamsanqa Ntenteni and Mr Jabulane Blose are appointed to serve on the Board of the Media Development and Diversity Agency (MDDA).
“We view this adoption as affirmation to our position that the three candidates were best among 13 personnel who were interviewed. They demonstrated leadership competencies as well as sound knowledge of the media landscape across the country, thereby giving us confidence about their suitability,” said Ms Joyce Moloi-Moropa, Committee Chairperson.
Ms Kadi and Mr Ntenteni are recommended to be appointed to serve the full-term of the Board while Mr Blose is recommended to be appointed to serve out the remaining term of a Board member who resigned.
“Mr Blose is a person living with disability. The Committee is proud to have recommended him in order to mainstream disability at all levels of society. We are impressed by his level of knowledge about the media sector. We are very confident that he will discharge his duties with diligence,” Ms Moloi-Moropa said.
