LEDET HOD, CFO must step down

Jacques Smalle (MPL)

DA Limpopo Provincial Leader

The Democratic Alliance in Limpopo strongly calls on MEC Seaparo Sekoati to immediately fire LEDET HOD and his CFO to save the Economic Development, Environment and Tourism of this province from the hands of these incompetent and careless officials.

The department’s oversight responsibility, action plans, financial reports, compliance and proper record keeping are amongst other obligations of the department which the HOD and his team embarrassingly admitted to have been caught neglecting as part of their responsibilities.

This came up during the department’s appearance before the standing committee on public accounts today, where it was revealed that human resource, transfer of funds, revenue management, Expenditure Management, abused Wesbank Card payments, asset management, annual financial statements are other responsibilities faced with incompetence.

It is for these reasons that the DA urges the MEC to display his political willingness in ensuring that the department is saved from being destroyed by these no committed public servants. Mr MEC, the HOD and CFO must be fired immediately.
