City Power boss fired

Purging. City of Jhb Mayor Herman Mashaba has fired City Power boss for serious misconduct. More to follow, as the Mayor purges dead-woods within the City.

This was the undertaking by City of Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba, on Monday.

The Board would ordinarily institute a disciplinary hearing, however Xulu’s contract will expire in August and as such the city would not be able to complete a disciplinary hearing, Mashaba said.

Xulu was hence released from all his contractual agreements.

“This decision -which I fully support -will begin the process of restoring good governance and ending corruption at the power utility,” Mashaba said.

“Weak corporate governance and corruption at City Power have for too long been allowed to rob our residents of much needed service delivery.”

“Millions of Rands were paid to a contractor who has not performed the work required,” Mashaba said.

“Had City Power’s governance and management systems not been eroded by corruption, quality services would have been delivered to the residents of these communities.”

City Power and the Mayor have been at loggerheads since February, when Xulu was placed on special leave.

Mashaba has promised to clean the rot that has seen City’s departments failing to meet public service demands.
