MIDVAAL - An MMC and four directors in the Democratic Alliance-run Midvaal Local Municipality have reportedly been added to the list of officials implicated in a cash-for-jobs scandal at the municipality. EWN revealed on Monday that deputy municipal manager Thom Peeters was placed on special leave following allegations that he appointed workers before the interviewing process. Peeters has been served with a notice of suspension and has until today to give reasons why he should remain in his position. Midvaal Mayor Bongani Baloyi confirmed that Corporate Services MMC Amelia Tsukudu has also been implicated. Baloyi said in a statement Tsukudu was suspended yesterday. He says that unlike Peeters, Tsukudu’s case has been transferred to the municipality’s ethics committee where it will be dealt with.
