Reschuduling Of Minister Mkhize’s Visit To Gauteng Province

Members of the media are informed that the planned oversight visit by Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA), Dr Zweli Mkhize, to Gauteng Province as part of his programme in support of interventions in distressed and dysfunctional municipalities is rescheduled.

The rescheduling of the visit follows the tragic passing of three fire fighters in the line of duty whilst trying to extinguish the fire that gutted some floors of the Gauteng Provincial CoGTA building in Johannesburg.

The new date for the Minister’s visit to Gauteng in support of the dysfunctional and distressed Municipalities will be announced in due course.

Minister Mkhize has conveyed his heartfelt condolences to the families and the colleagues of the firefighters who died in the line of duty.
