THE Msunduzi Municipality is investigating “fake jobs” that were posted on the internet.

The advert says the municipality is looking for qualified drivers, welders, cleaners, assistants, clerks, traffic controllers, supervisors, security and those wishing to tender for the municipality.

The advert tells people to apply by sending their CVs to and it must say “attention Mr Jele”.

The municipality has distanced itself from the advert saying they don’t know who is behind it.

“The municipality condemns this act in the strongest possible terms.

“We don’t know [who] this Mr Jele [is] and we don’t have anyone like that at the municipality.

“We ask anyone who has information about who did this to report it to the municipality­.

“We also ask our people to be vigilant.

“As the municipality our posts get advertised on our website, Msunduzi News,” said Thobeka Mafumbatha, Msunduzi spokesperson.
