Joburg’s ex-CFO ‘be­yond re­proach’

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - NEWS -

The City of Joburg has come to the de­fence of its for­mer act­ing group chief fi­nan­cial of­fi­cer Char­ity Wu­rayayi, say­ing her in­tegrity and com­mit­ment is be­yond re­proach.

May­oral com­mit­tee mem­ber for fi­nance Fun­zela Ngob­eni said in a state­ment yes­ter­day the pub­li­ca­tion of in­cor­rect in­for­ma­tion and se­ri­ous al­le­ga­tions im­pli­cat­ing Wu­rayayi had com­pro­mised her good name and “ir­re­spon­si­ble re­port­ing” had placed her pro­fes­sional rep­u­ta­tion in dis­re­pute.

“Wu­rayayi serves the city as a highly pro­fes­sional and ex­tremely com­mit­ted of­fi­cial who per­forms her du­ties with great in­tegrity and com­mit­ment in her sub­stan­tive role as group head of group ac­count­ing and served as act­ing group chief fi­nan­cial of­fi­cer for the city from March to De­cem­ber last year,” he said.

The city re­garded Wu­rayayi as an as­set and took se­ri­ous of­fence at false and ma­li­cious in­for­ma­tion pub­lished about her, Ngob­eni said.

Last year, a con­tro­ver­sial fleet ten­der at the city made head­lines.

The city an­nounced last Wed­nes­day that Ma­nen­zhe Ma­nen­zhe had been ap­pointed as the new group chief fi­nan­cial of­fi­cer, join­ing the city from par­lia­ment where he served in the same ca­pac­ity.
