Johannesburg - The acting director-general at the public works department has been fired for "showing no remorse" for his role in the R500m police lease deal, The Star reported on Thursday.

Sam Vukela reportedly awarded the deal to Roux Shabangu after a brief meeting with Lieutenant General Hamilton Hlela where issues of police accommodation and parking were discussed.

He was found guilty in May of coercing junior members of staff to secure Pretoria's Sanlam Middestad Building for police in 2010, the daily reported.

The case's presiding officer, advocate Lesego Montsho, found that Vukela was unfit to continue with his job. He reportedly criticised Vukela for failing to follow tender regulations.

"Vukela has showed no remorse in as far as the commission of the offences is concerned... This conduct clearly shows that he is not remorseful but is an untrustworthy person.

"What remains therefore, is whether in light of the factors the continuation of an employment relationship will be tolerable and practical," Montsho was quoted as saying.

According to the newspaper, Vukela challenged the fairness of his dismissal at the bargaining council on Wednesday.

The Star said Montsho found no mitigating circumstances for a lesser sentence and ruled that a dismissal was the only appropriate punishment.
