Meet North West Premier’s Spokesperson – Sello Tatai

There’s a new Sheriff in town. Let’s meet the new spokesperson in the North West Province – Sello Tatai.

North West Premier, Bushy Kaobitsa Maape has appointed Tatai, as his spokesperson with effect from 13 September 2021. Tatai comes with a wealth of experience in the media and communications fraternity. He is a former senior television journalist with a career spanning close to a decade.

Tatai holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science, African Literature and Media Studies from the University of Witwatersrand, an Advanced Certificate in African Political Economy from the Thabo Mbeki African Leadership Institute (TMALI). He is currently pursuing his Post-Graduate Degree in Public Administration with the Management College of Southern Africa (MANCOSA).

While excited at his new responsibilities he succinctly avers that given the rurality of the North West government communications must play a developmental role. This must encapsulate informing and educating the people of the North West about various government programmes and plans in fighting the triple challenges of poverty, unemployment and income inequalities.

“The North West story must also include profiling the majestic tourist destination sites that the province has to offer, the heritage and culture through music, arts, literature and preservation of oral history. The re-imaging of the province is therefore of critical importance in luring investment to the shores of the province while creating socio-economic opportunities for the youth, women as well as emerging and small enterprises. The communication of the province must be seen propagating for this trajectory,” Tatai
