uMkhanyakude municipal manager Mxolisi Nkosi has been placed on precautionary suspension.
Spokesperson for the municipality in north KZN, Mduduzi Dlamini, said in a statement the suspension, with full pay, had been effective from August 13. Dlamini also said the suspension was due to “damning reports by the Auditor-General (AG)”.
He said Nkosi was facing allegations of misconduct and maladministration as raised by the AG. He said ministerial representative Bamba Ndwandwe has since placed Nkosi on precautionary suspension.
