VANDERBIJLPARK - The Emfuleni Local Municipality is reportedly in the process of lifting the suspension of two employees after four years of sitting at home on full pay without being charged. SowetanLive reports one of them was even able to earn an increase during the period. According to the report, the employees were accused of corruption, breaching the code of conduct and gross dishonesty after they allegedly asked for a bribe from a resident to earn a rebate. Their case dragged on with the municipality failing to secure their hearings because it claimed a key witness on the matter could not be secured to testify. As a result, according to municipal spokesperson Makhosonke Sangweni, their case was in the process of being withdrawn to allow them to return to work.
