In December last year, Gauteng Premier David Makhura reshuffled his cabinet when he appointed Dr Nomathemba Mokgethi as Health MEC. She is the former Social Development MEC.
The position became vacant following the removal of Dr. Bandile Masuku, after his alleged involvement in corruption related to a tender to procure Person Protective Equipment.
Other prominent appointments included Parks Tau, who was appointed MEC for Economic Development and Morakane Mosupyoe as the new MEC for Social Development.
