southafricalogoEngineering News reports that Dr Sean Douglas Phillips has been appointed as the new permanent director-general of the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS).

Water and Sanitation Minister Senzo Mchunu said that he was hopeful that the stability of the department and its entities would be realised with a permanent director-general of the calibre of Phillips. He issued a plea to everyone in the sector to give Phillips all the necessary support, noting that the appointment came at an opportune time when the water sector was faced with a myriad of challenges that needed knowledgeable administrators with innovative ideas “to steer the ship in the right direction, working closely with the political leadership”. Phillips is an engineer by profession with more than 20 years in senior management positions in government.
