Coun­cil wants Mhlongo to re­sign with im­me­di­ate ef­fect­mands E450 000 from Mhlongo

Sunday Observer - - NEWS - BY ZWELETHU DLAMINI

In a com­mit­tee meet­ing held on Fri­day, the coun­cil is said to have after sat­is­fy­ing them­selves that their de­ci­sion not to re­new Gideon Mhlongo’s con­tract in May was ‘le­gal,’ de­cided that the CEO should stop work­ing with im­me­di­ate ef­fect.

Adding salt to the in­jury, the coun­cil is said to have also de­manded that the CEO should pay back the salary that he has been paid over the past three months, amount­ing to E450 000. The CEO re­port­edly earns about E150 000 a month. “He had been wrong­fully paid the money be­cause his con­tract had ex­pired,” said a source close to the mat­ter. The source also re­vealed that the coun­cil would soon be in­form­ing the new Hous­ing Min­is­ter Prince Sime­lane that the de­ci­sion by his pre­de­ces­sor Phi­wayinkhosi Mabuza was wrong, hence he needed to rec­tify it.
