Overtime: manager in the clear

2010-03-16 00:00

ACTING municipal manager Kevin Perumal issued a statement saying the council report that held Madeleine Jackson-Plaaitjies, the manager in the municipal mana­ger’s office, responsible for authorising overtime for bodyguards, was not accurate.

“I would like to place on record that the details of the council report are incorrect. It has been established that Jackson-Plaaitjies has not signed for, or authorised, any overtime for any VIP bodyguards since an Exco resolution was taken in November last year,” said Perumal.

He said that the municipal official who compiled the report admitted that Jackson-Plaaitjies’ name was used based on previous information which was outdated.

“Any damage and hurt which the report might have caused to her and her family is regretted. Jackson-Plaaitjies has indicated that she is pleased that this statement clears her name in this regard,” said Perumal.
