The office of North West premier Job Mokgoro has confirmed that both the premier and one of his MECs Saliva Molapisi have tested positive for Covid-19.

This announcement was made on Tuesday where they also announced that the premier and the MEC will continue to discharge their official duties, though they will be on self-isolation.

The province has already suffered a loss of one of it’s MECs, MEC for Cooperative Governance, Human Settlements and Traditional Affairs Mothibedi Kegakilwe who died on Monday after he had also tested positive for covid-19.

Mokgoro’s office said because the premier is not seriously bed ridden, he will still continue with his duties.

“The premier will therefore continue to discharge his duties albeit remotely and has instructed members of the premier’s support staff who have worked with him closely in the last two weeks to test; while taking the necessary precautions.”

“The provincial department of health has already begun with contact tracing in this regard.”
