RTMC to get new CEO soon

Jan 26 2012 09:54

Johannesburg - The appointment of a new Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) CEO is on track after the contract of its suspended former head Ranthoko Rakgoale ended in December 2011, the transport ministry said on Wednesday.

Plans to appoint the new CEO started immediately after Rakgoale's contract ended because there were disciplinary processes which had to be followed, spokesperson Logan Maistry said.

"Earlier today (Wednesday), Minister (Sbu) Ndebele was handed a memorandum by RTMC employees requesting a resolution to various issues. Putting the RTMC in order has been one of our most urgent tasks," Maistry said.

The RTMC was established for cooperative and coordinated strategic planning of road traffic matters by the national, provincial and local governments.

It was therefore important that "the agency functions effectively and efficiently to fulfil its mandate", Ndebele said in a statement.

He also held talks with SA Transport and Allied Workers' Union president Ephriam Mphahlele and general secretary Zenzo Mahlangu in Pretoria on Wednesday on the funding of road construction, road safety, the administrative adjudication of road traffic offences, and aviation training and rail rolling stock acquisition.
