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
