acsaBusinessLive reports that employees of the Airports Company of SA (Acsa) are campaigning to remove Bongani Maseko, CEO of the state-owned company, based on forensic reports that recommended disciplinary action against him and three senior managers.  

The managers — Percy Sithole (procurement), Jabulani Khambule (regional airports) and legal counsel Bongani Machobane — were found guilty at an internal disciplinary hearing on corruption charges and of wasteful and fruitless expenditure.  They were suspended on full pay.  Acsa’s board also resolved to act against Maseko, but it has not done so.  The group of "concerned employees" has demanded in e-mailed letters (dated January 2018) to the Presidency, the transport and finance departments and the Public Protector that Maseko be disciplined before his term as CEO finishes at the end of March 2018. "[The] government cannot extend the Acsa CEO’s term beyond March 2018 as he has corruption charges and has a criminal case reported by the Acsa board that he has to answer to," the group noted.  An Acsa spokesman confirmed that Transport Minister Blade Nzimande had communicated with the board on the matter.
