NAPTOSA DISILLUSIONED BY THE APPOINTMENT OF FAITH MUTHAMBI
MEDIA STATEMENT - 3 April 2017
NAPTOSA DISILLUSIONED BY THE APPOINTMENT OF FAITH MUTHAMBI AS THE MINISTER OF PUBLIC SERVICE AND ADMINISTRATION (DPSA)
The President of NAPTOSA, Mr Nkosiphendule Ntantala, stated that the union noted with distress President Zuma’s irrational and inappropriate ‘Cabinet Reshuffle’ that has resulted in competent Ministers being removed, whilst some, who have clearly demonstrated incompetence, have been rewarded. This makes NAPTOSA very concerned that Faith Muthambi has been appointed as the Minister of the DPSA.
Faith Muthambi has a poor track record in her last position as Minister of Communications. Under her leadership the SABC stumbled from governance to governance crisis that ultimately led to the dissolution of the board. NAPTOSA is therefore astounded that she has been tasked with heading the lead department on human resource and collective bargaining matters in the public service. “How can the President believe that Faith Muthambi, after having failed in a small department like Communications, has the requisite skills to lead the public service, or is his deployment of her more sinister in that he wishes the public sector the same fate as Communications?”, asked Mr Ntantala.
