gautengThe New Age reports that the office of Gauteng economic development MEC Lebogang Maile has urged employees of Gauteng Enterprise Propeller (GEP) not to resort to strike action as his office was open to engagements regarding their allegations about widespread maladministration and corruption in the entity.  

This was after GEP employees handed a memorandum to the office of GEP CEO Leah Manenzhe, Maile and the Gauteng legislature on Tuesday containing allegations of widespread corruption in the entity.  GEP is tasked with growing small and medium enterprises and promote entrepreneurship development in the province.  “We have accepted the memorandum, we are looking at issues and we will respond at the right time.  Strike action should be the last resort because our doors are always open for engagement.” Maile’s spokesperson Castro Ngobese said.
