N West premier recall rumours unfounded

2013-07-16 12:49

Johannesburg - Rumours that North West premier Thandi Modise will be recalled from her position are without basis, her office said on Tuesday.

"The rumours are completely unfounded and can only be entertained by those who want to divert the premier’s attention from focusing on faster delivery and intensifying the fight against corruption and maladministration," spokesperson Lesiba Kgwele said in a statement.

On Monday, Business Day Live reported that there was speculation that President Jacob Zuma could recall Modise and Eastern Cape premier Noxolo Kiviet, in the wake of his Cabinet reshuffle last week.

Kgwele said a syndicate was trying to discredit Modise to divert attention from its corrupt activities.

"But the premier is not deterred by the rumour, as her record of turning around the situation and bringing about an efficient and transparent government speaks for itself."

    Unfortunately that syndicate's SO SO powerful that there's a possibility that it even RUNS the country!

  • ABASHONI - 2013-07-16 15:50

    They said same thing about the Mathale and we all know including you Modise will go, Zupta is flushing everybody out of the system who did not support him in Mangaung. This is JZ,if you ever double-cross him you are finished. He is finishing this organisation I wonder how the elders are feeling when they look at the current and future position.

  • Andrew M - 2013-07-16 15:51

    Well these days anything is possible! If JZ decides you must go - you go. That is how a dictatorship works.
