CapeNature CEO suspended

Cape Town - The Western Cape conservation body CapeNature's CEO Manana Moroka has been suspended, its board said on Wednesday.

Spokesperson Karl Lotter said an investigation was being conducted into an alleged "breach of trust" between Moroka and the board.

No more details about the reason behind the suspension were immediately available.

The board had appointed Kas Hamman as acting CEO until the investigation was completed.

Moroka was appointed CEO in June 2011 on a three-year contract. When she was appointed, CapeNature described her as having "extensive leadership experience".

She had served as CEO for Proudly SA from 2005 to 2009 and deputy director general for marketing in the trade and industry department from 2003 to 2005.

The board said no CEO had ever been suspended "in the history of CapeNature", but that three executive directors were suspended in 2007.

Their suspensions were eventually lifted and they returned to work.

CapeNature falls under the provincial department of environment affairs and development planning. It is responsible for 31 provincial conservation management clusters.
