Water DG given notice of intention to suspend

Sunday, July 16, 2017

Department of Water and Sanitation Director-General Dan Mashitisho has been given a notice of intention to suspend, subject to him providing reasons as to why he should not be suspended.

Minister Nomvula Mokonyane requested the DG to provide these reasons based on transgressions considered serious by the Minister, department spokesperson Mlimandlela Ndamase said on Sunday.

“Adherence to the principles of confidentiality in the matter is critical so as not to tarnish the integrity of the DG before a fitting process has been finalised. In this regard, once a response is received and considered a decision on the matter will be made accordingly,” explained Ndamase.

Ndamase said the process is confidential and is a matter between the employer and the employee concerned.

“As with all such matters, the department and ministry will be guided by established legislation and labour practices in this regard.” - SAnews.gov.za
