JOHANNESBURG – The Democratic Alliance (DA) says the departure of National Treasury Director General Dondo Mogajane comes as no surprise.

Finance Minister Enoch Godongwane announced on Thursday that Mogajane would not extend his contract and would step down in June.

The Minister commended Mogajane for his leadership at the Treasury and for successfully overcoming the department’s unprecedented challenges.

Mogajane served the government for 23 years, the last five of which as Director General of the Treasury.

Godongwane said he was a committed leader and thanked him for his tireless efforts.

The process of recruiting a replacement began with the minister confident that a worthy successor would be appointed.

DA Shadow Finance Minister Dion George said Mogajane had served the country with distinction.

“He was always very sensible, and he had a long career at the National Treasury, and I think he added a lot of value, so I think his skills are going to be missed at the Treasury. But having said that, there is a number of people in the treasury who have skills and will be able to replace him when the time comes,” George said.
