Mr Sekwati told the new Kgoshi that it was not an easy task to be a leader and that every day will come with its set of challenges, but he ensured him that with a good support from the people he will be working with including the royal family and all other stakeholders, his job will become much easier.

On behalf of the provincial government of Limpopo MEC Sekwati wished Kgoshi Bishop Makhati Malatji  everything of the best in his huge task of leading the community of Ga-Selwana to new heights.

He promised the new Kgoshi that the provincial government was going to provide him and the traditional Council with all the support needed to run the affairs of his community.” It is now up to Kgoshi working together with the traditional council, the ward councillor and the ward committee to implement and complete developmental projects that have been identified for the community.

MEC Sekwati further said that the Kgatla Commission on Disputes, whose term of office has been extended, was working towards completing its work and that it has so far managed to resolve more than 293 disputes, of which 236 have been determined by the Premier and 170 communicated. The government is hopeful that with the extended period given to the Commission it will be able to complete the remaining 255 cases.

“The government is holding a view to reopen Maaparankwe Schools for traditional leadership to inculcate an understanding and belief of what it means to hold an office of Traditional leadership. Already the engagements with the relevant stakeholders are underway, especially with the Department of Education on structuring the curriculum. It is through this school that children from royal households will be able to be taught from the young age about their royal responsibilities once they are grown up”.

“As part to provide tools of trade, the government has so far procured 169 vehicles and delivered 113 vehicles to senior traditional leaders.”he said.
