NYDA board chairperson & deputy shortlisted for 2nd term
Yershen Pillay and Kenny Morolong are among 13 people who will be interviewed by Parliamentarians next week.
CAPE TOWN - The National Youth Development Agency's Board Chairperson and deputy have been shortlisted to take up positions on the board for a second term.
Yershen Pillay and Kenny Morolong are among 13 people who will be interviewed by Parliamentarians next week before Members of Parliament (MP) whittle the list down to seven.
The current board's term came to an end this month.
Since the board was appointed, the agency, which has a R409 million budget, received its first ever clean audit last year, a drastic improvement after squandering millions on a controversial youth festival in 2011.
The Democratic Alliance MP Eric Marais said, "There re 13 people actually shortlisted. We have to select seven as you know and the interviews will take place next Tuesday and Wednesday."
Board members are appointed by the President on the recommendation of Parliament.
