Johannesburg - Business Unity SA chief executive Nomaxabiso Majokweni has resigned, the organisation said on Thursday.

“The Busa board has accepted the resignation of chief executive Nomaxabiso Majokweni, who is leaving to pursue other interests, having spearheaded a restructuring of the organisation over the past three years,” the organisation said in a statement.

A process to appoint a new chief executive had already begun.

Fergus Marupen, who had been assisting Busa president Jabu Mabuza, would act as chief operating officer and oversee the daily operations.

“Majokweni will continue to act as chief executive until 28 February and will be available to provide support to Busa thereafter to ensure an orderly handover,” the organisation said. - Sapa
