Radical socio-economic transformation has the capability to structurally change the economic development patterns for the benefit of the previously disadvantaged, especially from rural areas. The North West Government, under the credible leadership of Honourable Premier Supra Obakeng Ramoeletsi Mahumapelo is hard at work to rebrand, reposition and renew (RRR) the Province through the development of quality road infrastructure network.

"We call on all public servants to become agents for change"...
Friday, February 16, 2018

Our state employs one million public servants. The majority of them serve our people with diligence and commitment. We applaud them for the excellent work they do.

We want to instil a new discipline, to do things correctly, to do them completely and to do them timeously...[Read]
