SENIOR MANAGER SUSPENDED FOR FRAUD AND CORRUPTION

The City of Ekurhuleni has suspended a senior official in the Department of Health and Social Development on allegations of tender fraud and corruption.

The manager in the Social Development Division was suspended with full pay after allegations of tender fraud and corruption involving millions came to the City’s attention, and after a complaint of unethical and corrupt behavior was reported against the same individual to the South African Council for Social Service Professions (CSSP) recently.

The City has launched a full-scale investigation into the allegations, a process which is driven by the Internal Audit Department. Upon conclusion of the investigation, the City will determine a way forward.

In the meantime, the manager remains suspended with full pay until the investigation has been concluded.
