South Africa: Ntau Letebele?s Dismissal As the CEO of Great North Transport Is a Victory in the Fight Against Corruption in Limpopo

NEHAWU is happy about the decision to reverse the appointment of Ntau Letebele as new CEO of Great North Transport in Limpopo by the company’s board.

This was the right thing to do by the board and we are proud that our members stood up against this blatant act of nepotism and were prepared to fight against this foolhardy decision.

This though shows the level of rot and incompetence that exists in some divisions of the Limpopo Administration. The African National Congress should speedily put in place the proposed integrity committee that will vet and also hold accountable its deployed cadres in government.

Pinky Kekana’s suspected involvement in this saga cannot be downplayed and is embarrassing to those who believe in the movement and its ethos.

The ANC should rid itself of the bad elements that are hell-bent on tarnishing its well-merited reputation and its stellar record.

We will continue to demand answers from Mr Letebele over the controversial awarding of a R53m contract to On-Point Engineers.

The battle against corruption has only just begun and our union will be leading from the front to ensure that thieves and mafia factions do not loot the state resources with impunity in the province.

We congratulate the fearless.

NEHAWU members who are vigilant and remain society’s watchdogs.

The union calls on all public servants to fight corruption wherever they find it and improve the service standards in the public service.
