Mahikeng – Premier of the North West, Prof Tebogo Job Mokgoro has on Saturday
afternoon, 21 November, appointed Mr Mmoloki Saviour Cwaile as the new MEC for
department of Cooperative Governance, Human Settlement and Traditional Affairs
(COGHSTA). Cwaile’s appointment comes four months after the passing of former MEC,
Mr Gordon Kegakilwe, who succumbed to COVID-19 related illness in July.
Cwaile whose appointment is with immediate effect, was sworn in by the North West High
Court Judge President, Monica Leeuw at Garona Building in Mmabatho. Before his
appointment, Cwaile was the Chair of Chairs in the North West Provincial Legislature and
the Chair of Standing Committee for Legislative Review and Implementations of House
Resolutions since after the 2019 General Elections.
Speaking during the swearing in ceremony, Premier Prof Mokgoro highlighted the huge
service delivery challenges experienced by the local government sphere, saying MEC
Cwaile must confront them immediately.
“Residents across the 22 municipalities of our province are hungry for effective delivery of
services, free from acts of corruption and maladministration. I have confidence in Mr
Cwaile’s ability to serve the people of this province, and I also believe that he will execute
this task honorably and diligently”, Premier Mokgoro said.

the opportunity given to me by my organisation, the African National Congress, to serve
the people of our province.
I also thank Premier Mokgoro for giving me the opportunity to serve in his Executive
Council, as this demonstrates the trust he has in my skills and capabilities. I assure the
people of this province that I will remain steadfast in my commitment to serving them
diligently and honestly.”

Development who has been acting as MEC for COGHSTA since July, saying she
responded positively when called upon to assist, and has delivered on this additional
responsibility with vigor and earnestness.
