Dondo Mogajane is National Treasury’ new Director-General.

Mogajane has been at Treasury since 1999.

Between 2007 and 2010 he represented South Africa at the Executive Board of the World Bank as a senior advisor for Africa Group 1 countries.

Between 2010 and May 2014 he served as the Chief of Staff in the Ministry of Finance and later (May 2014 until May 2015) as the acting Chief Operating Officer.

Since June 2015 he served as Deputy Director-General responsible for the Public Finance division at National Treasury.

Who is Dondo Mogajane?

Bruce Whitfield put that question to Argon Asset Management’s Dr Thabi Leoka and former Treasury Deputy DG Andrew Donaldson.

Listen to the interviews in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

I was hoping they got someone from within National Treasury.

Dondo has been there for 18 years, and he’s not even old!
