Dondo Mogajane has been confirmed by Cabinet as director general of National Treasury in a permanent capacity.
Finance minister Malusi Gigaba announced in May that Mogajane had been appointed as the acting DG of the National Treasury, following the sudden resignation of Lungisa Fuzile.
Mogajane joined the Treasury in 1999 after which he worked in a number of areas including inter-governmental relations, provincial budget analysis and has represented South Africa on the World Bank’s forum.
Fuzile officially tendered his resignation in April of this year, days after president Jacob Zuma’s cabinet reshuffle and the firing of ex-finance minister Pravin Gordhan.
David Maynier, DA shadow minister of finance welcomed the appointment. “His appointment puts to rest fears that a rogue, such as Brian Molefe, may have been appointed to the top job at National Treasury.
“The fact is Dondo Mogajane is a career professional with nearly eighteen years of service in senior positions within National Treasury,” he said.
