Eastern Cape Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs HOD suspended

MAY 6, 2016

Eastern Cape Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs MEC, Fikile Xasa, on Friday announced that he has suspended his Head of Department, Nombulelo Hackula.

According to the Eastern Cape Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, this is due to issues raised by a forensic investigation conducted by the Eastern Cape Department of Social Development Department, where Hackula was previously employed.

The investigation has reportedly made unspecified but serious allegations, which Hackula has to answer to, hence her suspension to allow the investigation to take its course.

Meanwhile, the Deputy Director General for the Local Government Development portfolio, Nomphelo Roboji, has been appointed as the The Department's acting HOD.
