Johannesburg - Gauteng health MEC Hope Papo said on Thursday that 17 officials at Dr George Mukhari Academic Hospital in Garankuwa had been suspended.

He said they had allegedly contravened the hospital's recruitment procedures.

"The department will not tolerate any form of misconduct by any staff member and those who are found to have been involved in this scam will be dealt with accordingly."

The officials in different sections of the hospital were suspected of selling jobs and appointing their family members and friends.

Papo said the hospital did not sell jobs and urged people to report any official who solicited money in exchange for any job opportunity.

"Those who are found guilty of these acts will be kicked out of the system and if they are also found to be criminally liable for their actions, the law must take its course," said Papo.
