This was confirmed by the MEC for Economic Development, Environment, Agriculture and Rural Development Lebogang Maile, today.
The relatively unknown Ngwenya (in terms of tourism background) brings with him a thick record from the executive role.
He’s the Gauteng Economic Development Agency (GEDA) former boss.
Nngwenya, was also Deputy Director General for Business Regulation and
Governance at the Gauteng Department of Economic Development, a platform that shaped his insight into the management and promotion of sound relations between government agencies and its shareholder, a prerequisite for sound governance and heightened delivery on the task at hand.
MEC Maile says:”The new CEO must continue working hard in consolidating the city region’s standing as Africa’s leading business and leisure destination with breathtaking and countless township tourism offerings, world-class
museums housing our rich political and cultural heritage and the birthplace of humankind.”
“Township tourism products beneficiation and promotion, the drive to get local and international visitors to appreciate the significance of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site as our pilgrimage area, leveraging business tourism opportunities and the bidding and hosting of mega events in Gauteng will be our key focus working together with the industry players”, says the (49)Ngwenya.
He replaces the redundant Dawn Robertson who has been re-deployed to oversee the Constitutional Hill.
