Mmemezi 'violated council travel policy'

2012-07-03 09:21

Johannesburg - Gauteng Local Government and Housing MEC Humphrey Mmemezi allegedly signed off on a R3 600 car allowance for his daughter and five other Mogale City municipality employees, according to reports on Tuesday.

The Star
newspaper reported that he allegedly signed off on the allowance even though he was warned it was against council travel policy.

In respect of his daughter Nomvuzo Mmemezi, the allowance was backdated for four years to a time when she and three others did not qualify for the perk. The other allowances were also backdated.

As a result, Mmemezi allegedly violated the council's travel policy, which prohibits junior staff from qualifying for a car allowance.

The six had jointly petitioned the municipal manager for the retrospective adjustment.

According to documents seen by the Star, Mmemezi signed off the allowances on May 19, 2010. He was the manager of human capital management at the time.

In an interview with Talk Radio 702 on Monday, he denied inflating his daughter's salary.

    how come there are no checks and balances in our wonderful systems ? why are people allowed to be this f'ing incompetent for as long as they are ? this is my tax money this germ is pissing into the wind. the another national crisis party is so good at anal-ysing things post them happening, when the money has been spent and is long gone.' if we had to pay zuma the loser based on his performance and on those of his fellows, he'd have to pay money in. death to the false ones.

  • Peter - 2012-07-03 10:02

    Backdated for 4 years - nice tidy sum of money ( R 172 800 )to use to BUY the F*&king car in the first place to "qualify" for the "allowance". This is nepotism staring you in the face and people accept it!!!!

    Good Grief. What else has he stolen? A true ANC cadre he is.

  • ruben.maistry - 2012-07-03 10:08

    FIRE not redeploy is the word.Those that received the benefit but did not qualify must also be FIRED.Could Minister Trevor Manuel please tell us of his plan to STOP corruption, is it being implemented and what is his success rate thereof. The law abiding tax payer needs an explaination. IF THIS ROT DOES NOT STOP,LAW ABIDING CITIZENS MUST STOP PAYING TAXES. It's time we held the government accountable.

      dhavandran.palavar - 2012-07-03 10:21

      maybe we should pay our taxes into a trust account and only release the monies when we are happy to do so.

  • schalk.mattheys - 2012-07-03 10:11

    Why don't these guys use there creative accounting skills for the good of the community that they are actually supposed to be serving? It such a f@ckup! Every single one of them has a scam going on the side...I wonder what the total annual cost of corruption in the SA government is to the South African taxpayer...man, this gravy train is soooo overloaded

  • sam.swanpoel - 2012-07-03 10:12

      azande.futhi - 2012-07-03 10:24

      I hope u two will have fun in your dishonesty with the taxman...hahahahaha. good luck.

      marcelle.joubertdurandt - 2012-07-03 10:24

      I agree. I am leaning towards NOT being honest with my tax money ... Why should I? Honest tax payers are just another group of innocent victims of crime & fraud in SA..... FFS! Will this EVER come to an end?

      BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-07-03 10:31

      Asande - the biggest fun will be the knowing that your crooked criminal government can't misuse my money.

      Nicolaas - 2012-07-03 10:38

      @Dhavandran, I already decided that I will not submit any taxforms, nor will I pay any tax to these corrupt bastards. I need the rest, the other 5 million to join me in my stand against these rubbish called ALL NATIONAL CRIMINAL PARTY and bankrupt this stealing, corrupting, cadre deployment, kniving govament so that there is no money for them to steal. Then we will see where they will get money from to live off!

  • Wouter - 2012-07-03 10:22

    And as usual, nothing will happen with him.

  • chequ.checked - 2012-07-03 10:26

    Is there a department where corruption does not prevail... I mean, these guys should atleast watch some movies on how to steal for crying out loud...The funny part is, it is so blatent for everybody to see, however a never ending investigation needs to be done....ofcourse only in South Africa

  • ditoare.gypsy - 2012-07-03 10:28

  • trudiroos.potter - 2012-07-03 10:29

    How is it possible that hardly anyone of them is honest? And to get his own daughter in with him on this scam. Don't they have any moral values? To me this is the worst. To teach your own child that you must be dishonest. Eish! Be

  • Peter - 2012-07-03 10:35

    Heeeellloooooooooooo !!!!!! ANYBODY HONEST OUT THERE ??????

  • terence.pattison - 2012-07-03 10:42

  • Randomhero6661 - 2012-07-03 10:43

    we need to approach this situation differently, we simply cant keep voicing our opinions over mismanagement and corruption. SOLUTION : SOAP IN A SOCK AND BEAT!

  • Seena - 2012-07-03 10:43

      Gerald Jordaan - 2012-07-03 11:01

      Seena...not certain people just the ANC !! You peckerwood!!

  • Baruch - 2012-07-03 10:52

    Is anyone even surprised anymore? I think we have reached the point where news of an honest government official would be shocking and controversial..

  • Motsamai Shiya - 2014-03-30 13:24

    How did the daughter get the job, by merit or because daddy was in charge....this is deeper than the eyes can seen. Thanks for the car allowance now we can even look into how she got in....stupid comrades.
