Another member of KwaZulu-Natal cabinet resigns

Ravi Pillay, the Member of the Executive Council for Economic Development, Tourism, and Environmental Affairs (EDTA), submitted his resignation on Tuesday. Additionally, he handed in his resignation from his position as a member of the provincial legislature. 

The resignation of Pillay from his position in the government follows closely on the heels of the resignation of the premier, Sihle Zikalala, leaving two openings in the executive. 

On Wednesday, his resignation will be presented to the assembly during the session that is scheduled to take place during which Nomusa Dube-Ncube is anticipated to be voted into office. 

Pillay informed the staff in his department that he had resigned from his position as a member of the KwaZulu-Natal legislature and, as a result, as a member of the executive committee. He explained that his resignation was in accordance with the policies of the political party he belonged to. During his time in office, he expressed gratitude to the department head, top management, entity board members, and staff for their support and contributions "to strengthening EDTA and its entities and giving effect to each distinct mandate." 

According to Pillay, "EDTA and its family of institutions are crucial to confronting the challenges of our time, which include poverty, unemployment, and inequality." 

In addition to this, he offered thanks to those individuals who assisted in navigating and conquering the problems brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, the disturbance in July 2021, and the recent rains. 

"As a province, we have demonstrated our resiliency, and we have given true meaning to the hashtag #KZNRising." There is a great deal more work to be done, but I am certain that you are up to the challenge.
