Mlengana has been suspended with immediate effect pending an internal investigation into alleged misconduct, the department said in a statement on Wednesday.

"The suspension is a precautionary measure and does not in any way constitute a judgment," the statement said.

Deputy director general for agricultural production, health and food safety Mooketsa Ramasodi has been appointed to acting director general.

The ministry was not forthcoming on the reasons for the investigation.

Mlengana had been in the post for 12 months as of July.
