Speaker Lambert Hendrik Joubert (PhD)

Speaker Lambert Hendrik Joubert describes himself as ADA (Always Democratic Alliance) because his upbringing was according to DA principles.

The newly elected Speaker of coalition-run Thabazimbi was prompted to get into politics because he saw his community collapse around him.

Lambert was born in Smithfield in the Free State and he grew up in Bethal, Mpumalanga, matriculating from Hoërskool Hoogenhout. He has a BA Law (Hons.) Degree, his Masters in Political Sciences (Development and Management) and his PhD in Development and Management.

His first job was as town manager in Promosa and Mohadin, Potchefstroom.

Lambert is married with four sons aged 26, 17, 8 and 6. In his spare time he enjoys reading and spending time in nature. He lives by the motto: “Any challenge… work and live it out.”

The Speaker’s vision for Thabazimbi is to create a corruption free, proud and capable municipality which receives clean audits.
