Company’s Board

Mr Sipho Mtakati - Chairman

I wish to extend a word of gratitude to our CEO, Mrs. Phumzile Nhlapo and the LDA officials. My board colleagues and I have inherited a healthy and vibrant institution on whose foundation our mandate includes to promote the economic development in the district to create jobs and wealth. To succeed in its mandate, the LDA has to nature its relationships with its shareholders and both the internal and external stakeholders.

LDA has developed and managed processes to enhance the partnerships with key stakeholders to foster support for our strategic objectives, outcomes and impacts. Stakeholders are an integral part of performance of the mandate of the Board and were identified in terms of the extent to which they exert influence over the communities in which they operate.

A diagnostic on the state of affairs at LDA was done and a strategic document was developed in line with the National Treasury planning and budgeting guidelines. The guidelines were enhanced by engaging different stakeholders. Our key projects include: Solar power plant, ICT Hub and VPN, Tourism, Sunflower plant, Maize Milling and the Film studio. I, on behalf of the Board, wish to thank the LDA officials for the capable manner in which they have steered the organization in the right direction during this evolutionary and transformative period.
