joburgcityANA reports that City of Johannesburg Executive Mayor Herman Mashaba on Thursday warned that discipline action would be taken against employees who have embarked on an illegal work stoppage within the City’s Revenue Shared Services Centre (RSSC).  

Last week, 13 officials were arrested by the Hawks, working together with the City’s Group Forensic Department, on charges of fraud, theft and corruption totaling about R2.5m.  The mayor indicated that since then a group of employees have been participating in illegal work stoppages in alleged solidarity with the arrested officials.  He also reported that 40 other employees have been implicated in wrongdoing within the RSSC.  Mashaba commented:  “It is unfortunate that a faction of the South African Municipal Workers’ Union has also chosen to support and protect those implicated in fraud and corruption in this matter.”
