The Gauteng Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Environment (GDACE) has disappeared in name. After the April election it was replaced by the Gauteng Department of Agriculture and Rural Development and to date nobody is sure exactly what that means, nor how it affects conservation and environmental issues.

The new MEC is Ms Nomantu Nkomo-Ralehoko, formerly chairperson of the Agriculture, Conservation and Environment Committee in the Gauteng Legislature. Khabisi Mosunkutu, ex-MEC for GDACE, is now MEC for Safety and Security.
