DenelEngineering News reports that trade union Solidarity on Tuesday welcomed the resignation of Denel Group CEO Zwelakhe Ntshepe.  

It also expressed support for recently appointed board chairperson (Ms) Monhla Hlahla, complimenting her for the changes she has already made at the State-owned defence industrial group.  “This resignation follows constant pressure by the trade union against Ntshepe and other corrupt management in Denel.  Solidarity won’t hesitate to uncover other corrupt persons in management positions.  Corrupt persons in Denel won’t be able to sleep peacefully at night anymore,” Solidarity deputy general secretary Deon Reyneke asserted.“  The union had, since December, made various disclosures about wrongdoing at the group.  In April, it published a dossier showing cases of financial mismanagement and revealing that a R1.2-million bursary had been awarded “unlawfully” to the son of North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo.  According to the union, this dossier was “the final nail in Ntshepe’s coffin”.  Solidarity asserted that Ntshepe’s resignation was not the end of the matter.  Reyneke called for a thorough forensic investigation and, if criminal wrongdoing was found, that appropriate action, including the pressing of criminal charges, be taken.
