Parliament gives CFO the boot

2012-08-24 18:01

Cape Town - Parliament's chief financial officer Leslie Mondo has been dismissed with immediate effect following the findings of a disciplinary hearing, the national legislature said on Friday.

Mondo was found guilty on four out of five counts of misconduct.

The charges relate to the salary advance of R186 000 paid to National Assembly Secretary Zingile Dingani for a security wall around his plush Panorama residence.

Mondo had allegedly ordered Parliament’s finance department to grant Dingani the advance payment.

"Mr Mondo was charged with five counts of misconduct related to financial matters. He was found guilty on four of these," Parliament said in a statement.

Mondo has already been informed of the findings.

"No further internal processes will be entered into."

The disciplinary hearing against Dingani had not yet been concluded. Both Dingani and Mondo were placed on special leave in March after the misconduct allegations surfaced.

The auditor general was asked to investigate, and later recommended that Parliament discipline them.

    Keep on stealing. The ANC has a degree in stealing! Complements from the university of Zuma Inc. Steal, steal and steal some more. Don't brand me as a racist as I comment that the ANC is the grand master of stealing and fraud!

    Nothing, but nothing can save the hopeless cadre employment policy of the ANC.

    Did he ever repay the loan? I think not. Appropriate punishment: A shack on the outskirts of Soweto. No running water, no electricity and NO security wall. Oh, and public transport. If he is happy to use money for himself instead of for the people, then he can see what their lives are like. The same goes for all politicians caught stealing!

    The Question: Is the wall to keep the criminals in or out?

  • hannes.bez.3 - 2012-08-24 20:18

    Watch this space - they will both appeal and stay on in the lucrative job or be placed on full pay leave for months while the ANC and its catfooted impis dance around trying to exonerate these criminals who, because of the apartheid legacy, were unfortunate to be caught with their hands in the cookie jar. In the end they will probably get a nice golden handshake that will let them live without worries while they scheme where next they can ply their trade of fraud and corruption. Who knows, the secrecy bill may yet save them. Amandla.
