Public Protector welcomes new CEO, CFO

Public Protector Adv. Thuli Madonsela on Friday welcomed, to her office, Dr. Maria du Toit and Mr. Kennedy Kaposa, who have been appointed Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) respectively.

Dr. Du Toit and Mr Kaposa commence their duties on Monday, March 02, 2015. Their appointment follows the departure - last September - of former CEO, Mr. Themba Mthethwa and ex-CFO, Mr. Dumisani Dlamini.

Expressing her delight at the appointments, Adv. Madonsela said she was thrilled to welcome the duo to the Public Protector Team.

“We are confident that their input will take us to a higher level in our quest for brand integrity as we continuously strengthen our efforts at helping the people of South Africa exact accountability on the exercise of state power and control over public resources while helping to transform public sector governance service delivery to optimise accountability, integrity and responsiveness,” she said.

Adv. Madonsela added that both Dr. Du Toit and Mr. Kaposa have her full confidence and support in guiding the institution to constantly enhance its own governance and management so as to lead by example.

Dr. Du Toit, an Advocate of the Supreme Court of South Africa, has over two decades of experience, having practiced as a lawyer and held several senior managerial positions in the academic sector and government.

Mr. Kaposa, on the other hand, is a chartered accountant with a wealth of knowledge in accounting, having worked as a senior official, both in the private and public sectors.
