Executive Mayor Ramaila assigned to institute punitive action against Acting MM

GROBLERSDAL – Following the granting of an interim high court order, which set aside appointment letters that were irregularly awarded to eight companies for the Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM)’s Covid-19 emergency projects worth R26 million, a special council meeting took place on Tuesday, 04 July 2020 to deliberate on the matter.

The council delegated duties to SDM Executive Mayor, Stanley Ramaila, to institute a disciplinary action against Acting Municipal Manager, Mpho Mofokeng.

The district municipality said while it successfully nullified the said appointment letters through a court order, it had an obligation to investigate allegations of financial misconduct and if warranted, institute disciplinary proceedings against implicated officials as per section 171 (4) of the Municipal Finance Management Act.

The process to institute a disciplinary action against Acting Municipal Manager Mofokeng will unfold in terms of disciplinary regulations for local government managers, according to SDM.

The SDM council has endorsed the appointment of Molatelo Mabitsela, Director of Planning and Economic Development, as acting municipal manager.

Mabitsela, as acting municipal manager, is expected to initiate a disciplinary process against managers appointed in terms of section 57 of the local government: Municipal Systems Act 44 of 2003 implicated in the matter.

According to SDM, she will also take disciplinary action against other public officials as per the South African local government bargaining council guidelines.

Executive Mayor, Ramaila, reiterated that the district municipality was tirelessly working towards building an administration fully accountable and responsive to the expectations and the needs of ratepayers and residents.
