The former Alexkor Board was rotated at the Annual General Meeting held on 14 August 2015, with the exception of Ms Z Ntlangula and Dr R Paul who were re-appointed to the Board at the SGM of 14 August 2015.
Ms Matseke was appointed as Chairperson and NED of the Board, while Messrs Haasbroek, Matona and Bansi were appointed as NEDs with effect from 14 August 2015, for a period of three years, subject to annual review by the Minister of Public Enterprises.
(c) Ms McMaster was not appointed as a Director to the Alexkor Board.
