Ravi Pillay is the latest member of the KZN cabinet to quit.
Ravi Pillay, who was the MEC for Economic Development, Tourism, and Environmental Affairs, is the most recent member of the KZN cabinet to leave.
His resignation happened at the same time as Premier Nomusa Dube-Ncube changed his cabinet.
RAVI PILLAY RESIGNS FROM HIS POSITION AS MEC
Pillay's departure comes after another member of the cabinet, Sihle Zikalala, said he was leaving. This meant that there were two open jobs in KZN.
"According to the rules of my political party, I have resigned from the KwaZulu-Natal legislature and, as a result, from the executive committee,"
Pillay said this, as TimesLive reported.
Pillay's time at Edtea was full of storms, like the pandemic, the 2021 July Unrest, and this year's floods. He made sure to talk about the trouble the province had been through recently:
"As a province, we have shown that we are strong, and #KZNRISING now means something. There is still a lot to do, but I have no doubt that you can handle it."
IN KZN, THERE IS A NEW EXECUTIVE COUNCIL
Dube-Ncube said yesterday that six new MECs have been added to the cabinet. Siboniso Duma, who is also the Leader of Government Business, is taking over for Pillay, says IOL.
Zikalala is now the cabinet member in charge of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs. This is a new position.
"It's important to note that as the new executive council, we all know that this province is lucky to have a lot of capable leaders in all parts of society who can see a bright future. But what we need to do right away is choose the right path that will lead us all to our destination."
The Provincial Executive Committee heard what Dube-Ncube said.
When Dube-Ncube became KZN Premier, she made history. She is the first woman in the history of the leading party to hold this position.
