Manyi probed over non-govt work - PSC

2012-03-01 22:37

Johannesburg - Government spokesperson Jimmy Manyi has been investigated for allegedly receiving pay for work outside his government job, the Public Service Commission (PSC) said on Thursday.

"The PSC conducted an investigation following receipt of a complaint regarding alleged transgressions of section 30 of the Public Service Act by Mr J Manyi," spokesperson Ricardo Mahlakanya said in a statement.

This section of the Act states that no officer or employee can perform remunerative work outside their public service employment without permission, unless it was provided for in their conditions of employment.

The PSC had informed Minister in the Presidency Collins Chabane of the outcome of the investigation.

Earlier, Manyi would not comment on the matter further than saying: "I have not seen the Public Service Commission's final report".

Business Day reported on Thursday that the Freedom Front Plus laid a complaint with the PSC in March 2011. The FF Plus suggested Manyi might have failed to declare earnings from his position as a Black Management Forum director.

According to the newspaper the commission recommended Chabane hold a disciplinary hearing into Manyi's alleged outside remuneration.

    Many is as evil as Malema. He needs to be expelled as well, the wicked little creep with the chip on his shoulder that's turned into a forest. Yeeugh!

    If this is true then I hope they go after Jimmy Manyi. Because of his arrogant manner when addressing the press I hope they really do a thorough investigation.

    The "Spin" that this guy gives is so bad, that the SA cricket team does not want him.

    Backhanders from the e-tag system probably, the toll system will eventually be investigated just as the arms deal, everyone got their kickbacks, Just another sad loser.

    Many-i wants many-more--Why be satisfied with 10Mil a year salary plus perks? He is also guilty of civil disobedience now but it will actually better his anc cv. Now he can stand for president. Isn't he the guy that said that civil disobedience won't be tolerated with the toll road scandal and the public with be severely dealt with if they are guilty?. The anc is guilty of civil disobedience ignoring democratic processes and forcing expensive toll roads onto the public. Maybe that is why Many-i took the extra money--IT IS TO PAY FOR THE TOLL ROADS!!!!

    And all the worms start crawling out of the closet......... Who will be next? :-) it is good to see that something is happening in the government for a change! Thanks! Just hope that these people don't get suspended with full pay as usual though - please, in future only suspend without any pay till the after the investigation is completed and if found non guilty then he/she can then be paid in lieu, that's only fair to the tax payers!

    My comment was removed for stating what is public record-that Manyi had been jailed and had breached bail conditions,adding that that is not a good example! News 24 get over yourselves!
