Durban - The chief financial officer of KwaZulu-Natal's health department will have to wait a bit longer to find out whether he gets to keep his job.

Judge Hamilton Cele had been expected to hand down judgment in the Durban Labour Court on Tuesday on whether Mashaka Enos Ravhura was lawfully fired from his post by the health department head Sibongile Zungu.

Lawyers representing Ravhura and the department arrived at court on Tuesday to find no judgment. Court officials could not say when the judgment was expected.

Ravhura was suspended on full pay along with supply chain manager Andile Zondo on 26 November 2013. He had been in his post for little more than a year.

The department has revealed neither Ravhura's offence nor the outcome of the disciplinary inquiry.

When announcing the suspensions the province's health MEC Sibongiseni Dhlomo did not provide details.

"All I can say is that there were irregularities in the execution of their duties," he said.

The National Education, Health and Allied Workers Union said in December that Ravhura had been found guilty by the inquiry and the recommended sanction had been to issue him with a final warning.

However, Zungu opted to dismiss Ravhura, which Ravhura challenged in the labour court.

Last week it was confirmed that Zungu was herself being investigated for alleged mismanagement and corruption.
