joburgcityTimeslive reports that two employees working in the City of Johannesburg’s group finance department have been suspended for allegedly fraudulently transferring R800‚000 to attorneys.  

Mayor Herman Mashaba said the pair were part of a “syndicate of internal and external individuals‚ who swindled money from a customer’s account to an attorney’s trust account.”  Chief among our priorities has been the process of recovering this money from the attorneys.  Additionally‚ we will be laying criminal charges against both the internal and external individuals in this syndicate and ensure that everyone involved faces the full might of the law‚” he said on Monday.  Mashaba added that he was disappointed that officials were still engaged in corruption‚ despite the city making it clear that corruption would not be tolerated.
