Probe: of­fi­cial on leave

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - SIYABONGA MKHWANAZI

THE Na­tional Ed­u­ca­tion, Health and Al­lied Work­ers Union ( Ne­hawu) has wel­comed the de­ci­sion of Speaker Baleka Mbete and Na­tional Coun­cil of Prov­inces chair­per­son Thandi Modise to grant spe­cial leave to the Sec­re­tary to Par­lia­ment, Gengezi Mgid­lana, pend­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion by an in­de­pen­dent au­dit com­mit­tee.

Mgid­lana has been at loggerheads with Ne­hawu for some time, with the union ac­cus­ing him of wrong­do­ing.

Mgid­lana was ac­cused of spend­ing thou­sands of rand dur­ing a trip to Lon­don last year.

The DA ac­cused him of wast­ing thou­sands of rand on an of­fi­cial visit to Zam­bia re­cently.

He was also ac­cused of pay­ing him­self an ex-gra­tia pay­ment and award­ing bursaries ir­reg­u­larly.

He has de­nied all the charges against him.
