Cape Town - Parliament has appointed Michael Coetzee as secretary to Parliament to replace Zingile Dingani, who was sacked in September.

Coetzee's appointment is for five years, the institution said in a statement.

Before he joined Parliament as deputy secretary in 2002, Coetzee was provincial secretary of the Gauteng legislature for four years.

He previously worked as Parliament's human resources manager, and as deputy personnel manager and industrial relations manager at the University of the Western Cape for a number of years.

Coetzee was appointed acting secretary to Parliament in March this year, after Dingani was placed on special leave.

"Mr Coetzee's work ethic, experience, competence, and commitment to the institution of Parliament are beyond reproach.

"This was evident throughout the time that he worked as deputy secretary to Parliament and during the seven months that he was acting secretary to Parliament this year."

Coetzee’s appointment as secretary to Parliament takes effect on 1 November.

      If you consider rape, murder, stealing, tender rigging and striking (to name a few) a "good job" then yes, I agree with you.
