tshwane thumb100 The Citizen reports that City of Tshwane manager Moeketsi Mosola has called for an urgent internal investigation into the means of transportation of completed application forms for vacant positions.  

This came after photos were circulated on social media showing the forms being packed in the back of an open bakkie at the city’s offices in Temba to be transported to the One-Stop Centre recruitment office in the CBD.  Mosola said:  “The circulating pictures are disturbing as they give an impression that this is how we handle sensitive and confidential information of job-seekers.  I have called for an urgent investigation into this matter because this is not how we conduct our business.  This is an isolated incident that we are treating with the urgency it deserves and will soon report to the public on the outcome of our investigation,” Mosola indicated.  The city recently advertised 581 operational posts, including those of artisan assistants.  The high volume of applications resulted in a number of logistical problems.
