Bemanti employee suspended
Recent reports are that the NamBoard employee who could not be eligible for bonuses because he attended the royal duties during last year’s Incwala has been suspended on suspicion of theft of garden plants.
However colleagues believe this could be victimisation after Elwandle Indvuna Ben Mshmandane Sibandze went to the company to enquire about the treatment of the employee who also serves in the water party royal duties.
Insiders revealed that he was hauled before management and berated for letting his circumstances leak to the media but the state enterprise would not confirm this.
Sources at NamBoard revealed that the employee was ordered to remain at home and only return at the end of the Incwala ceremony next year when his suspension would be taken further.
On Thursday the bemanti were commissioned at Ludzidzini Royal Residence.
