Limpopo transport boss out of new job

2013-01-24 17:35

Ntau Letebele’s appointment as new CEO of Great North Transport in Limpopo has been cancelled.

“The appointment happened on January 16. But today after reviewing all the processes that were followed ... we terminated the contract,” GNT chairperson Muthuhadini Madzivhandila said.

While reviewing Ntebele’s appointment the board discovered that not all procedures had been followed.

Bus company GNT is a subsidiary of the Limpopo economic development agency, a provincial government entity.

Letebele, who is the subject of an internal investigation over a multi-million rand tender awarded to On-Point Engineers, resigned as head of the Limpopo roads and transport department earlier this month.

The tender allegedly partly benefited former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema.

The resignation came days after the announcement of an investigation into the department’s awarding of the R52-million tender to On Point.

In October, Public Protector Thuli Madonsela found Letebele’s conduct in awarding the bid to On-Point improper.

She also found that On-Point and Malema had benefited improperly from the contract.

The National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union had called for Letebele’s appointment to be revoked, and for Limpopo economic development MEC Pinky Kekana to be investigated.
