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 Khoi-San 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.
