Madlingozi, Mr BS to ask the Minister of Sport, Arts, and Culture
What (a) procedures were followed in the appointment of Bongani Tembe, who is currently working as both councillor and Chief Executive and Artistic Director of the KwaZulu Natal and Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestras and (b) is the policy provisions he relies on for the working for one entity while at the same time being contracted to another
The recruitment policy or appointment of Mr Tembe by the orchestras is an internal matter of the boards of those orchestras.
These orchestras are not entities of the Department, so they do not report to us. The Honourable Member can contact the orchestras themselves for clarity on the matter.
