City of Johannesburg Mayor, Herman Mashaba.  ~ 

The City of Joburg has fired an official that was found guilty of shady dealings!

The City has terminated the contract of a senior official, responsible for our trade and investment projects, after they were found guilty of dishonesty and wrongfully influencing the allocation of tenders.

In a statement by Herman Mashaba, the official is said to have been involved in private business without permission from the City.

“[The official] breached our code of ethics, influenced procurement decisions for their own benefit and acted against the interests of the City,” he said.

“The City has declared war on corruption; no action contrary to observing the principles of fair and honest professional standards will be accommodated.”

“Major steps have been taken over the past few months in combating corruption across the City,” he said.

“These steps include imparting a culture of accountability and responsiveness to those serving the people of Johannesburg.

As custodians of good governance, employees of the City are expected to lead by example and adhere to the highest ethical norms and standards,” he added.
