Sanral is Looking for a New CEO to Takeover from incumbent Skhumbuzo Macozoma

The South African National Roads Agency is set to begin a recruitment drive to find a new CEO as incumbent Skhumbuzo Macozoma’s term comes to an end. According to a statement issued by Sanral, Macozoma’s term will end on 30 November 2021. 

“The Sanral board of directors will, in line with Section 19(2) of the Sanral Act … embark on a recruitment process to recommend a suitable candidate for appointment by the Minister of Transport before 1 December 2021,” the statement read.

Macozoma was appointed CEO in 2016. He had previously been the CEO of Electronic Toll Collection, which is contracted to collect e-tolls on behalf of Sanral.

According to a Financial Mail report, Macozoma was the second person to lead the state-owned enterprise, after having taken over from Nazir Alli. Alli had been CEO since its founding in 1998. He was due to retire in 2015 but continued into 2016 until Macozoma was named successor.

E-tolls, which are based on a user-pays principle, have been a thorn in Sanral’s side for some years and faced considerable resistance. Government has not yet announced a decision on the way forward for the programme.

Macozoma is the former MD of the Johannesburg Roads Agency. He holds an MSc in civil engineering and was chief officer: transport & logistics on the 2010 World Cup Local Organising Committee.
