 Johannesburg - The suspended regional commissioner for North West, Mpumalanga and Limpopo, Patrick Gillingham, has resigned, the Department of Correctional Services said.

"The resignation of Mr Gillingham closed a very long chapter of costly investigations and disciplinary processes that, I believe impacted negatively on service delivery capacity of the region," said correctional services national commissioner Tom Moyane late on Thursday.

"I must express my deepest appreciation to Ms Lunga Tseane (Acting Regional commissioner of LMN) and her management team for holding the fort," he added.

Moyane said minister Nosiviwe Noluthando Mapisa-Nqakula had promised President Jacob Zuma that "no effort will be spared to fight fraud, corruption and all their manifestations".

Gillingham is the department's former financial officer but was redeployed as regional commissioner in 2007 following reports that he was not qualified for the job and that he had only a matric certificate.

He was suspended in September 2008 after a preliminary report implicated him in tender irregularities.
