NMBM dismisses suspended metro official

2016-12-21 06:02

THE new administration of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality served a letter of dismissal to another long suspended metro official, Mod Ndoyana, on Wednesday.

“This new DA-led coalition government is serious about stopping corruption, which is exactly why we have taken a decision to expedite all outstanding disciplinary proceedings,” said Dean Biddulph, Mayoral Committee Member for Corporate Services.

Ndoyana, the former Corporate Services Executive Director, was served with a letter of dismissal on December 14, bringing to a close a lengthy disciplinary process and an extended period of suspension.

“The dismissal opens the way for the new administration to appoint a fresh face into the critical position of Executive Director for Corporate Services and sends a strong message that this administration will vigorously pursue every disciplinary process until all outstanding matters are concluded.

“We commit to appointing a new Corporate Services Executive Director who will take this Metro forward through clean and principled governance. This is the second high-profile case that has been successfully prosecuted and includes the recent dismissal of Supply Chain Management employee, Sox Nkanjeni,” said Biddulph.

He added that a number of long outstanding matters are progressing well, such as that of a suspended senior Budget and Treasury official who will appear in front of a disciplinary panel in late January. “Several high-level suspensions have recently taken place and we aim to complete all outstanding investigations in 2017. This government remains determined to make good on our election promises of stopping corruption.

“We intend to clean up the administration without fear or favour and remain on course to create a model of governance where accountability, honesty and professionalism become the hallmarks of a people-centred local government,” Biddulph concluded.
