Limpopo rewarding corruption - Samwu

2010-11-15 20:05
Polokwane - The Limpopo government is rewarding corrupt municipal managers with a "golden handshake", the SA Municipal Workers Union (Samwu) in the province said on Monday.

"Samwu... has been disturbed by the redeployment of corrupt municipal managers from one municipality to the other, while ignoring the blaring corrupt activities these managers are involved in," said spokesperson Tahir Sema in a statement.

"Some of these managers who were involved in corrupt activities have been transferred to municipalities with a much larger budget than the ones they left."

The union said the provincial government continued to ignore allegations of corruption in Musina, Vhembe, Tzaneen, Molemole, Phalaborwa and Sekhukhune.

Sema said Samwu and Cosatu would ensure that the allegations were investigated and the people involved be charged.

The provincial arm of the union would "resist and protest" at municipalities where corrupt managers were being deployed, he said.
