Transnet National Ports Authority has appointed a new female Durban port manager
Dweba-Kwetana will leave her current post as manager of the Port of Cape Town before taking up her new position in Durban from October 1.
TNPA said the appointment formed part of the port authority’s new operating model.
“Her appointment will assist in fast-tracking the Port of Durban Master Plan, a flagship infrastructure project that forms part of the new operating model and the broader Transnet reform programme,” it said in a statement on Tuesday.
The authority said the multi-year project will expand the port’s container capacity, with the aim of repositioning Durban as the strategic hub port for the African continent.
Dweba-Kwetana has over 20 years of maritime, port and logistics operations experience and is a qualified maritime economist. She served as Port Manager: Port of Ngqura for eight years prior to managing the Port of Cape Town.
Before joining Transnet, she held various leadership positions at the National Department of Transport’s maritime industry development and promotion sector.
“The appointments followed extensive interview processes and consultations and are in line with an approved Executive Structure aimed at capacitating and delivering TNPA’s new operating model,” said the authority.
Other appointments also announced this week include:
– Anthony Ngcezula as General Manager: Commercial Services, effective from September 27. TNPA said Ngcezula has extensive experience in property development and management, strategic leadership and governance, having worked in reputable financial institutions and in the banking sector. He is commercially astute and has been directly involved in business transformation.
