Kabelo Mataboge

ANC Secretary: North West

At 33 Kabelo Mataboge is currently the youngest provincial ANC secretary in the country. His elevation to the highest office in the province came when factions in North West managed to reach an agreement after the political infighting that saw the ANC national executive committee disband the provincial executive committee almost two years ago. Mataboge's political awareness started at a very early age. His father was a member of the ANC's Umkhontho weSizwe and his mother was a trade unionist. At 14 Mataboge was elected regional leader of the Congress of South African Students. Since then he has served as provincial secretary of the ANC Youth League, as a national executive committee member of the South African Youth Council and also as provincial chairperson of the National Youth Commission. He served as a member of Parliament from 2009 until he received his current appointment.�Matuma Letsoalo
