Premier Mahumapelo

North West Province Premier Supra Obakeng Ramoeletsi Mahumapelo is ensuring a paradigm shift to put the province firmly back on the map.

Taking over the reigns as Premier of the province in May 2014, he has already ensured that his administration

is focused on the strategic vision of rebranding, repositioning and renewing the province.

The driving forces of the strategic vision are de-conventionalisation, simplicity, dynamism as well as being action-oriented and people-centred.

“Critical to this strategic vision is the need to address a package of subjective

and objective negative perceptions that people within and outside the province have about the North West,” explains Premier Mahumapelo.

“Improved service delivery and economic development are thus located at the heart of the strategy and integrated planning, unified information management

and performance monitoring, evaluation and intervention have become obligatory as a result of this approach,” he says.

A shared-service model has been put in place throughout the province, from local and district municipalities to national departments operating in the North West, stateowned entities and provincial departments.

“The vision to rebrand, reposition and renew the North West is a living one. Everything the province is doing is in the context of its vision, which will be the main focus of this administration,” he adds.

Face-lift for Mahikeng The Premier wants to put Mahikeng back in the spotlight

and the launch of the Mahikeng Rebranding, Repositioning and Renewal Programme is expected to help achieve this.

“The programme aims to give Mahikeng, the province’s capital city, a major face-lift,” says Premier Mahumapelo.

Projects include the Mahikeng Local Municipality, working with other provincial departments and strategic partners,

to implement 23 infrastructure projects, including the construction of a new stadium for Mahikeng, the reintroduction of passenger rail
