Sheryl Cwele awaits fate on job

Durban - Convicted drug dealer Sheryl Cwele, wife of State Security Minister Siyabonga Cwele, will know next Tuesday if she will keep her municipal post, Hibiscus Coast municipality said on Friday.

The outcome of a disciplinary hearing against Cwele, the municipality's suspended head of health services, will be made public on Tuesday, municipal manager Sbu Mkhize said.

"The chairperson of the committee has made a ruling on the appropriate sanction and the report will be tabled during the executive committee meeting on Tuesday. We will brief the media on the same day,” Mkhize said.

He was speaking on the sidelines of the KwaZulu-Natal premier's coordinating forum in Gateway, Durban.

The highly publicised hearing began in June this year and the committee ruled against Cwele last month.

It was convened to determine if Cwele should keep her post after she was convicted of drug dealing by the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg on May 6.

She was sentenced to 12 years in jail.

Mkhize did not want to divulge the sanction imposed by the committee.

“I cannot tell you that. We have to follow the protocol. The report has to go to the executive committee first before it is made public,” he said.

Asked whether the executive committee can overrule the disciplinary hearing decision, Mkhize said the executive committee would have to come up with valid reasons why it opposed its findings.

She is appealing her drug dealing conviction and is out on R100 000 bail.
