Millions spent by Emfuleni to prevent suspended CFO from returning to work

VAAL TRIANGLE - The Democratic Alliance in Emfuleni says even though the municipality’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Mr Andile Dyakala’s disciplinary hearing has been concluded and he is meant to return to work, the Emfuleni Municipal Manager is preventing him from doing so. DA Political Head for Emfuleni North, Kingsol Chabalala MPL, says in a video seen by the DA, the CFO was forcefully removed from his office last week. According to Chabalala, the municipality is going to court to fight against the reinstatement of the Chief Financial Officer, which will cost it more money instead of focusing on service delivery. He said to date, Emfuleni has paid the CFO R1 614 747,00 to sit at home since the suspension, despite his willingness to return to work and perform his duties. Chabalala said it is unacceptable that our residents continue to suffer due to a lack of service delivery while hundreds of thousands of rands are spent on paying a CFO to sit at home. According to the statement, Emfuleni has also paid around R6.4 million in legal fees in this matter. Here is a list of the costs: • Rasekgoete Attorneys: R1 046 363,68 • Adv Zola Majavu: R826 490,76 • Raphela Attorneys: R2 407 474,07 (For appearing once at the CCMA and once at the Bargaining Council) • Raphela Attorneys: R574 285,51 (Legal Opinions) • Raphela Attorneys: R2075 562, 07 (For appearing twice at the Labour Court/High Court) • Cost recovered from the CFO: R450 570, 24 PHOTO: (Kingsol Chabalala - DA)
