Emfuleni municipality implicated in jobs-for-pals scandal

VAAL TRIANGLE - The Emfuleni Municipality is implicated in a jobs-for-pals scandal following allegations that some political support office-bearers were appointed in the offices of the mayor, the council speaker and the chief whip, two weeks before the municipal polls. According to IOL, the allegations regarding possible illegal political appointments surfaced during last week’s virtual house sitting in the Gauteng Legislature. DA MPL Kingsol Chabalala enquired from Gauteng human settlements MEC, Lebogang Maile, why political appointments at the municipality were made despite a directive from Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma that those positions must be vacated because they were linked to the political term of office.
