The director-general of public enterprises, Portia Molefe, has resigned after five years in the post, the department said on Friday. It said Molefe was leaving “to pursue other interests”.
“She will serve three months notice and will leave the department at the end of November 2009.”
Public enterprises minister Barbara Hogan thanked Molefe for “her selfless service to the department, government and the country”.
“Her insight into national economic imperatives, both at an enterprise and national level, has driven the department’s renewed focus on the state-owned enterprises as vehicles for industrial development and economic growth,” she said. — Sapa
