The Department of Traditional Affairs is poised to play a key strategic role – not only in assisting the
institution of traditional leadership to transform itself to be a central partner with Government in the
development of traditional communities, including the Khoi-San communities – but also in coordinating
the traditional affairs activities of this Department and those of other Government departments at
National, Provincial and Local Government levels, so as to ensure that the needs of traditional and KhoiSan communities (of development, service delivery, governance, access to indigenous knowledge
systems, traditional courts and indigenous law, traditional healers and indigenous languages, etc) are
sufficiently met. In addition, the Department must ensure that sufficient resources (human, financial and
infrastructural) are provided by the State to transform the landscape in the functional domain of the
Department of Traditional Affairs. Candidature of persons whose appointment/ transfer/ promotion will
promote representivity will therefore receive preference.
