No bonuses for non-performance

2010-10-21 21:27
Durban - Municipal heads from 17 KwaZulu-Natal municipalities that did not receive a clean audit will not receive a salary increase, said Local Government MEC Nomusa Dube.

"There will no longer be golden handshakes paid to municipal officials in cases where these managers are found to have committed acts in contravention of the law," said Dube in a statement.

She had a closed meeting on Thursday with municipal managers and mayors from 17 municipalities that did not receive a clean audit from Auditor General Terence Nombembe.

Dube said it should not only be municipal managers who did not get bonuses but councillors as well.

"You as councillors cannot keep receiving salary increments when there are endless problems in your municipalities."

Councillors had a right to report the council to the office of the MEC if there were irregularities, she said.
