joburgcityTimesLive reports that some City of Johannesburg workers have gone on strike in solidarity with their colleagues who have been arrested for fraud.  

Thirteen officials were arrested in a joint operation between the Hawks and the city's Group Forensic Department on charges of fraud‚ theft and corruption last week.  Mayor Herman Mashaba vowed to take a tough stance against employees involved in illegal work stoppages within the City's Revenue Shared Services Centre (RSSC).  "This must be condemned in the strongest terms.  Under previous administrations‚ corruption was allowed to rise to endemic levels‚ hampering service delivery throughout the City.  I have repeatedly stated that this cannot be tolerated any longer‚" Mashaba said in a statement.  Corruption busting has been a key issue for Mashaba since he came into office last year.
