The former MEC of the portfolio, Busi Shiba is the new political head of the Agriculture and Land Affairs Department.
Shiba had been acting in the position after the sacking of Mandla Msibi who is facing a charge of murder and attempted murder in the Nelspruit Magistrate’s Court.
Mtsweni-Tsipane says the reconfiguration is aimed at strengthening the provincial executive to enable it to improve its work.
