No nonsense Mashaba fires corrupt head of economic development

Taking no nonsense. CoJ Executive Mayor Herman Mashaba is making no bones when coming to corruption under his watch, that resulted in firing of head of economic development.

This follows the firing of head of economic development Sharon Peetz, who lied about taking a relative on an official jaunt to Spain recently.

The matter was raised by the ANC member to the Executive Mayor Herman Mashaba, after a forensic investigation found Peetz guilty and fired subsequently.

“Through her actions‚ it is my belief that Cllr Peetz has misled myself‚ the Council and the residents of Johannesburg. I have made it clear that‚ under my leadership‚ the City of Johannesburg will not tolerate such conduct any longer‚” Mashaba said in a statement.

A forensic investigation initially found that the city had not incurred any costs related to her family member’s travel‚ Mashaba said.

Mashaba said further forensic investigation had found that the money concerned is allegedly owed to a travel agent‚ meaning that the city has not suffered any losses.

“Irrespective of one’s role in the City‚ and irrespective of your political affiliation‚ there will be accountability for wrongdoing.”

The Mayor confirmed Dr Mpho Phalatse will replace Peetz.
