Gidani gets former DG as chair

Jul 13 2011 11:50
Johannesburg - The former director general of the department of home affairs, Mavuso Msimang, has been appointed non-executive chairperson of Gidani, the lottery operator said on Wednesday.

Msimang succeeds Bongani Aug Khumalo, who remains as an executive director and will continue in his role as chief executive of Gidani.

"This is an inspired appointment. We cannot overemphasise the need to continually finesse corporate governance, particularly in the lottery environment where the highest standards of transparency and accountability are an absolute imperative," said Khumalo.

He said Msimang brought on board considerable corporate experience at executive management level and was renowned for his success in the transformation of the state-owned enterprises he managed as CEO for 16 years up to March 2010.

Msimang previously served as chief executive of the State Information Technology Agency, SA National Parks, SA Tourism (then called Satour) and Tourism KwaZulu-Natal.

His appointment is with effect from July 1.
