Mantashe's comments come shortly after the resignation of the Necsa board on Wednesday morning.

"If they want to leave they can leave, I won’t stop them because what we are doing in the department is to resuscitate governance which has collapsed. So we are rebuilding it," he said.

He said the department is also in a process  of making new appointments to the board.
