The Board of Directors of Roads Agency Limpopo (RAL) SOC has announced that they have accepted the

reasons.
“The Board is appreciative of the leadership that Mr Matji has provided in stabilising the Agency, leaving
the organization in a much better state than he found it. Mr Matji is serving notice until the 31 March
2019,” says Board Chairperson Mr Matome Ralebipi.
Mr Matji is the first CEO appointed by the Board of RAL on a five-year contract, from 1 March 2015 to 29
February 2020, after the Agency was effectively returned from a Section 100 administration in early 2014
after a tumultuous period of lack of leadership, mismanagement and systematic collapse of corporate
governance.
RAL erstwhile host department, the Limpopo Department of Roads and Transport, was one of the five
provincial government departments placed under administration by national government from 2011 to
2014.
KEY ACHIEVEMENTS OF ROADS AGENCY LIMPOPO DURING MR MATJI’S FOUR-YEAR TENURE INCLUDE:
1. Stabilizing the Agency: Putting policies, processes, internal controls and procedures to ensure
effective operation and management of the Roads Agency Limpopo.
2. Improving the audit opinion of the Agency by the office of the Auditor-General of South Africa
(AGSA) from Adverse in 2012/13 to the Unqualified Audit Opinion for the recently audited
2017/18 financial year.
3. Raising close to half a billion rands from the private sector, through the Agency’s breakthrough
Strategic Partnership Approach, a key tenet of 2015-2020 now successful turnaround strategy.
These funds now at R482 million, have helped augment the Agency’s constraint budget and put a
dent on backlog in the province.
PRESS STATEMENT
4. Completing over 70 road infrastructure projects across Limpopo Province.
5. Used the same road infrastructure delivery as a vehicle for driving village economy by investing in
local Small Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMMEs) and creating jobs. Just over R458m has been
spent on local SMME empowerment and an impressive R325m in local labour spending.
The Board will begin the search for the new CEO. The Board is also pleased to announce that it has
appointed Mr Gabriel Maluleke, (seconded from the Board) with effect from 1 April 2019 as the interim
CEO until the recruitment process is successfully concluded. Maluleke is a qualified Chartered
Accountant, CA (SA) with 25 years of experience. He is also a qualified business rescue practitioner.
