LINDELWA JABAVU has been appointed the acting chief executive officer at Road Accident Fund.
Jabavu, who is the current chief operating officer at the organization was appointed by the board and sanctioned by minister of Transport Joe Maswanganyi.
She takes over the reins from Dr Eugene Watson, whose five-year term has come to an end.
“The appointment of Jabavu is with effect from 1 July, 2017, and she will serve until the process to employ a new CEO is finalised. This will guarantee that stability is maintained during the ushering in of a new compensation system under the Road Accident Benefit Scheme, thus ensuring productivity continues.
With the Department of Transport’s (DoT) RABS Bill currently before Parliament, we will continue to support the DoT’s efforts to create a comprehensive social security safety net which will expand access of much needed benefits to road users previously and currently excluded by virtue of fault,” read the media statement.
The appointment of new CE will be made a later stage.
