Apart from celebrating the first day of Spring, South Africa commemorates Heritage Month; Public Service Month, tourism and recycling in September - a busy time indeed - and in this edition of Public Sector Leaders you will find a bouquet of articles covering not only these themes but also advice about finance, upcoming events, a Covid update and mental health.
Inside this edition:
The regional focus this month is on Gauteng and 'In other news' we look at recycling initiatives. The publication takes a look at what is happening around the country to celebrate Heritage Month and moves afoot to assist with the recovery of our tourism sector.
Special features include:
- Our 'Trailblazer' is SA’s new Minister of Finance – Hon. Enoch Godongwana

In his letter to the country earlier this month – 'From the desk of the presidency' – our President celebrates Public Service Month and the dedicated public servants who are committed to Batho Pele principles:
“Our commitment to building a state that is ethical, capable and above all developmental necessitates that civil servants see themselves not merely as state functionaries but as development workers,” - President Ramaphosa.
It is a busy month for our public sector leaders with H.E. Ramaphosa attending the National Police Service Commemoration Day. His Excellency held a bilateral meeting with the Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, Angela Merkel ahead of the G20 Compact with Africa Summit and attended the inauguration ceremony of President-Elect Hakainde Hichilema in Lusaka, Zambia. He also participated in the 41st Ordinary Summit of SADC Heads of State.
Whether you are in the public sector, the private sector, supply chain or an interested individual, PSL
has something for you.
We hope you enjoy the read!
