The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Gauteng welcomes the swift action taken by Midvaal Mayor, Bongani Baloyi over irregular appointments in the municipality.
Mayor Baloyi has placed a high-ranking official who is allegedly implicated in a jobs-for-cash scandal on special leave.
The official now has to be provide reasons as to why he should not be suspended.
It is clear by the action taken by the Mayor of Midvaal, that the DA does not tolerate even a whiff of corruption.
The DA is the only Party to call for a minimum jail sentence of 15-years for anyone found guilty of corruption.
Where we govern, we ensure that we run a clean government that is free of corruption and nepotism.
