The Treasury has released a racial breakdown of the Chief Directors and it has revealed that Africans are the majority in charge at the department
The recent release of the Treasury’s racial statistics has shown that the majority of the chief directors are African.
This demonstrates that the government's finances are firmly in the hand of the majority in the country.
Finance Minister Tito Mboweni has submitted the figures in a response to a question posed in Parliament by EFF MP Hlengiwe Mkhaliphi. The statistics showed that out of the 55 chief directors in Treasury, Africans led the way with 25.
The breakdown of the figure sees 13 African men, 12 African women, 7 White men, 10 White women, 3 Coloured women, 3 Coloured men, 7 Indian men and no Indian women.
Aside from Mboweni and the deputy minister Mondli Gungubele, Dondo Mogajane ( Director-General) along with 6 out of 10 deputy director-generals are also African. One of the deputys is White and the other 2 are Coloured. Some of these officials are only in an acting capacity.
Earlier this year Floyd Shivambu (EFF deputy president) had accused Treasury’s Ismail Momoniat ( deputy director-general) for undermining African leadership as he had always represented Treasury in Parliament.
