Western Cape Premier Alan Winde has appointed Bianca Capazorio as his new spokesperson.

Commenting on her appointment on Monday, Capazorio said she “looked forward” to working with the media.

Winde, a member of the Democratic Alliance, was sworn in as premier on Wednesday, last week.

Following his announcement as the DA’s premier candidate, Winde told The Citizen one of his missions would be to help create dialogue around racial issues facing the province.

Winde was chosen after Maimane turned down the position, saying he was honoured by his appointment and had big shoes to fill from his predecessor Helen Zille.

He previously served as Western Cape provincial minister of community safety and a member of the Western Cape provincial parliament. Before this, he was Western Cape provincial minister of economic opportunities and Western Cape provincial minister of finance, economic development and tourism.
