Minister Muthambi drops axe on DPSA’s top three officials

Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA) Minister Faith Muthambi has served the top leadership of her department‚ including its director-general and chief financial officer, with notices of suspension.

She apparently served director-general Mashwahle Diphofa‚ finance chief Masilo Makhura and the deputy director-general responsible for administration, Linda Shange, with notices to suspend them, with effect from this Friday. The trio have been given until Friday to give her reasons they should not be suspended.

It is understood Muthambi has decided to suspend them because they do not agree with the direction she wants the department to take, and because of their tough stance on financial control. She is also said to be unhappy with Diphofa and Makhura’s refusal to make funds available for her Izimbizo programmes or public roadshows. Muthambi’s spokesman declined to comment, saying it was not their policy to comment on employer-employee relations.
