The NWDC informs its stakeholders that the Shareholder, as per the NWDC Act, has appointed Mr Kenneth Konopi as the new Chairperson of the NWDC Board of Directors, effective 8 September 2021.

Mr Konopi is an existing board member who previously served as the Deputy Chairperson.

This follows after the NWDC’s Shareholder recalled Ms Monica Sentle as Chairperson of the Board of NWDC. Ms Sentle remains an ordinary member of the Board.

We would like to thank Ms Sentle for her contribution and execution of her duties as the Chairperson.

We further wish Mr Konopi well with his new responsibilities as the Chairperson of the Board and urge all staff members to support him in his new role.

More information on the board is available on the Board Members page.

Anglo America’s Sustainable Investment Initiative is designed for you.



Impact Capital Africa is supporting Anglo American in the delivery of their 2021 Sustainable Investment Initiative.
We understand the difficulties that businesses like yours may have in accessing finance, finding the right investment partners, and in meeting investor objectives.

The Initiative team will originate a pipeline of innovative, impactful businesses with operations in the Northern Cape, North West, and Limpopo provinces.

The North West Development Corporation (NWDC) condemns the fake and inflammatory statements circulating on social media pertaining to property ownership and calls made to incite the public into illegally occupying the said buildings.

The NWDC legally owns these properties.

NWDC has the responsibility and the right to manage these properties in a manner that is financially viable and in the interest of the public.

In 1999, the erstwhile Bophuthatswana National Development Corporation was legally transferred, renamed and established as the NWDC, including all its property portfolios.

The NWDC is not currently selling its properties and has not appointed anyone nor any company to do the same.

NWDC condemns the related fake and unfounded statements in the strongest terms and will not tolerate such malicious accusations, and as such will take legal action against those who want to incite the public into illegal activities.

Members of the public are urged to report this hooliganism and thuggery to the NWDC and law enforcement agencies as this is tantamount to criminality.

Members of the public are warned and cautioned to not incite illegal activities that will have an impact on the economy of the North West Province on this matter of properties, but rather engage the NWDC on this matter if there are issues and matters of concern.

We repeat – The NWDC is not currently selling its properties and has not appointed anyone nor any company to do the same.

*NWDC statement ends*

Please take note
In addition to the above – Members of the public are urged to take note of a related statement issued earlier in 2021 by a different entity, The North West Housing Corporation (NWHC), resorting under the Department of Human Settlements.
It states that the provincial government has halted the process of auctioning off former Bophuthatswana properties until full consultations have been concluded.

The personal data of our e-newsletter subscribers is safe with us

The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) for South Africa came into full effect on 1 July 2021. The law is designed to protect how personal data is used, stored & processed.

While many organisations and companies were obliged to send out confirmation messages, especially obtaining consent for newsletter subscriptions, NWDC’s system for our e-newsletter had been compliant from the outset. Since the beginning, when our newsletter’s first subscriber forms were created, we have been distributing Pulse to opted-in subscribers only.

NWDC uses the cloud ware service provider Everlytic to design the quarterly e-newsletter and keep subscriber data safe. As far back as May 2012, the NWDC (then erstwhile Invest North West), became a client of Everlytic. As part of the process, our entire communications team underwent Everlytic training. Apart from being taught the ropes of the software, a large part of the training was devoted to the importance of subscriber data, the no-no’s of public lists, or the buying of lists and entrenched the values of consent, ensuring opted-in subscribers.

Since 2012, the practice of obtaining consent on both our online and hard-copy subscriber forms had been adhered to. What is more, every Pulse e-newsletter that is sent out, has an Unsubscribe link at the bottom, so that even an opted-in subscriber will always have the choice to cancel his/her newsletter subscription with immediate effect.

Some of our subscriber data, such as spreadsheets created from completed hard copy forms, are stored on the NWDC network. Here, NWDC’s IT division has also put measures in place to protect data.

NWDC’s IT network is currently protected by Firewall with Intrusion Prevention capabilities. The firewall further scans all incoming and outgoing traffic for Malware, Spam, Viruses and Phishing Attacks Furthermore, all endpoints (laptops, desktops and servers) have endpoint protection tools installed to protect against malware spam, viruses and website phasing. NWDC has also recently made the decision that our network security will be audited annually by a third party to identify any possible gaps and to improve and stay up to date with the latest available protection solutions.

At the NWDC, we uphold that every data entry is much more than that – it represents a real individual, a person made of blood and bone – who is a stakeholder, a client, a tenant, a customer. Every one of them is valued and has rights. Rights that we respect and uphold, especially the right to data privacy.
