joburgcityANA reports that the City of Johannesburg has dismissed 11 employees from the driver’s licence testing centres at the Department of Public Safety after they were found guilty in internal disciplinary hearings last month of fraud, corruption and dishonesty.  

Michael Sun, member of the mayoral committee for public safety, indicated that the employees registered vehicles to fictitious individuals and “dumped” the traffic fees and penalties of offenders by transferring the amounts payable to these nonexistent persons on the computer system.  They would thereafter re-register the vehicles of the offenders in their names so that they were not liable for the traffic fees or penalties.  Sun said formal letters of dismissal had been issued to the City employees.
