South African Nuclear Energy Corporation (Necsa) CEO Phumzile Tshelane on Friday welcomed the appointment of new members to the organisation’s board, stating that this would strengthen the corporation’s governance process.
Government on Thursday announced the appointment of Dr Kelvin Kemm as Necsa chairperson and the appointment of board members Nqaba Ngcobo, Namane Magau, Dr Xolani Mkhwanazi, Dr Alex Tsela, Rosemary Mosia, Zibusise Ngidi, Pamela Bosman and Prince Tshivhase.
“Since its inception, Necsa has carried out its mandate with impressive efficiency and often exceeded expectations in delivering on its predetermined objectives.
“The organisation has gained international respect and built a reputation among its international peers and has surprised many of its counterparts through successive breakthroughs and innovations that made Africa proud,” Tshelane added.
The new board would convene shortly and start its governance roles, which included assisting Necsa to drive its mandate, while ensuring that the organisation performed effectively and delivered as mandated.
