Environment: Vacancies hitch

2011-04-12 00:00

DEPUTY Minister of Water and Environmental Affairs Rejoice Mabudafhasi last week launched the Environmental Assessment Practitioners’ Association of South Africa.

The launch comes in the wake of recent revelations in Parliament that the department is struggling to fill staff vacancies.

In KZN, some 34 posts have been vacant for the past six months.

Ncumisa Mafunda, spokesperson for the KZN Agriculture, Environmental Affairs and Rural Development Department, said the aim of the new system is to develop and maintain capacity, law reform and the integration of regulatory processes. — Witness Reporter.
