Former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas is set to join the boards of investment management company Sygnia and mining company Northam. 

In a notice to shareholders on Monday morning, Sygnia - which is run by Magda Wierzycka - said Andre Crawford-Brunt, the managing partner at Braavos Partners, would also be joining its board as a non-executive director. Additionally, Sygnia's Deputy CEO David Hufton will also get a seat. 

Shareholders will get to vote on making the three appointments official at a special general meeting on October 2, 2018, in Cape Town. 

Platinum miner Northam, meanwhile, said in an update to shareholders that Jonas and Jean Nel, the former CEO of Aquarius
Platinum, had been appointed as independent non-executive directors to its board with effect from 6 November 2018.

The appointments are likewise subject to shareholder approval at the Northam's upcoming annual general meeting, to be held on November 6.
