Municipality’s vehicles seized after failure to reinstate Rabada


Just as it was reported in the previous editions of Sekhukhune Times, the sheriff has confiscated several vehicles at the Fetakgomo Tubatse Local municipality on Friday. 

It looks like rubbish won’t be collected in and around Tubatse villages this festive, also the gravel roads might remain in bad condition as the graders and waste removal trucks were seized.

This publication understands that the municipality was recently ordered by the South African Local Bargaining Council to immediately reinstate former Human Resource Manager Charity Rabada and further compensate her with R1.5 million for the unfair dismissal.
 “The Council has since ordered the municipality to pay Rabada before 31 August and reinstate her on 1 September 2019 but the municipality objected to this, arguing
that it would lead to prejudice if she was reinstated after the position was filled by another official a few months after her dismissal,” said our source at the FTLM.

The municipality failed to meet the deadline and to implement the Council’s recommendations and therefore she opted go back to court.

According to the warrant of execution dated October 2, Rabada attached the municipality’s five trucks and four graders valued at R1.5 million.

The vehicles were all seized by the sheriff in full view of members of the public at the old municipality buildings.

On Tuesday, the trucks were still not returned and their drivers were seen idling at work.

The newspaper also learnt from sources that the sheriff might be back again at the municipality to seize more equipment and vehicles. The FTLM is allegedly still owing the Operation Mabone contractor, Mphaphuli Consulting an amount of about 10 million.This publication will offer more developments in this story.
