MPL Chris Hattingh
DA Leader in North West
The discredited former Tlokwe Executive Mayor, Maphetle Maphetle, implicated in various independent forensic investigative reports, has been deployed to a senior position in the North West Provincial Legislature.
Maphetle, a teacher before becoming a councillor in the Tlokwe Municipality, was deployed as the Executive Manager Corporate Services at
R934 866 per annum, – a substantial increase from his previous position as Executive Mayor
The appointment of Maphetle into a senior position in the Legislature’s administration, without any applicable related experience, confirms that the NW ANC Chairperson and Legislature Speaker, Supra Mahumapelo, is not only consolidating his support, but is also keeping his inner support circle very close to him.
The DA will question the merit of Maphetle’s appointment into a position of trust in the Legislature and into a senior position for which he clearly does not qualify.
