The North West premier’s office announced on Saturday that it is establishing a forensic and fraud investigations unit to tackle corruption in the province.

Premier Supra Mahumapelo called on all members of executive council to lead by example, by demonstrating positive ethical conduct and rejecting corruption.

“We have asked that all forensic investigation reports commissioned by the provincial government ... be made available to the office of the premier for processing and disclosure through the legislature subject to necessary legal processes,” Mahumapelo said.

He appealed to members of the community to help government in the fight against fraud and corruption.

Mahumapelo said public servants should not be doing business with government.

In Gauteng, the City of Tshwane has indicated its intention to suspend chief financial officer Andile Dyakala and strategic executive director in the city manager’s office, Tshilidzi Nemahagala, according to the Saturday Citizen.

Notices of intention to suspend the officials were served on Friday after a committee resolution to this effect, which also authorised disciplinary proceedings to be launched against the pair.

Tshwane spokesperson Selby Bokaba said Dyakala was identified in a forensic probe relating to a printing tender and Nemahagala faces charges of subordination, harassment and dereliction of duty.

According to the report, Dyakala and Nemahagala had seven days in which to motivate in writing why they should not be suspended before city manager Jason Ngobeni made a final decision on the matter. – Sapa
