On behalf of all the Gauteng members we want to congratulate the new leaders and assure them of our support.

Mr Manne closed his speech by inviting NAPTOSA members to join him in the humble task of being a servant. He declared that he would serve members with dignity.
Mr Manne also paid tribute to the outgoing Chairperson, Mr Tinus du Preez by quoting Maponga Joshua who said that the title “master” belongs to those who have mastered discipline, can control difficult situations with ease, with skill and self-discipline and those who possess power that is built on knowledge and experience. On behalf of all NAPTOSA Gauteng members, Mr Manne expressed his gratitude to Mr du Preez for having led the province with dignity.
