Manyi probed over non-govt work - PSC
Johannesburg - Government spokesperson Jimmy Manyi has been investigated for allegedly receiving pay for work outside his government job, the Public Service Commission (PSC) said on Thursday.
"The PSC conducted an investigation following receipt of a complaint regarding alleged transgressions of section 30 of the Public Service Act by Mr J Manyi," spokesperson Ricardo Mahlakanya said in a statement.
This section of the Act states that no officer or employee can perform remunerative work outside their public service employment without permission, unless it was provided for in their conditions of employment.
The PSC had informed Minister in the Presidency Collins Chabane of the outcome of the investigation.
Earlier, Manyi would not comment on the matter further than saying: "I have not seen the Public Service Commission's final report".
Business Day reported on Thursday that the Freedom Front Plus laid a complaint with the PSC in March 2011. The FF Plus suggested Manyi might have failed to declare earnings from his position as a Black Management Forum director.
According to the newspaper the commission recommended Chabane hold a disciplinary hearing into Manyi's alleged outside remuneration.
