Statement on The Status Of EThekwini City Manager
Following the expiry of City Manager's, Sipho Nzuza, special leave, he is legally entitled to resume his duties.
After his arrest, Nzuza was suspended for a period of three months in accordance with the Disciplinary Regulations governing senior managers. This was to make way for an independent investigation by the KZN Provincial Treasury on a different matter where there were allegations of violating supply chain processes.
According to the progress report on this investigation tabled by eThekwini Mayor Cllr Mxolisi Kaunda, there have been delays in finalizing the investigation partly due to Covid 19 lockdown as well as the unavailability of some of the material documents.
The special leave, which was granted to Nzuza after the expiry of the suspension came to an end on 25 September 2020.
Kaunda, will meet with Nzuza to discuss how is he going to do his duties against the background of his bail conditions.
