tshwane thumb100 News24 reports that that the City of Tshwane announced on Wednesday that the team probing the appointment of former Tshwane chief of staff Marietha Aucamp has been given more time to continue investigations.  

It had been expected to provide feedback on its investigation on Wednesday.  Instead, it briefed City manager Dr Moeketsi Mosola on its progress on Tuesday and requested an extension of time.  The City said it would wait for the investigation to be completed before it made the findings public.  It was not immediately clear how much time Mosola had given the team.  Aucamp was appointed to the position of City of Tshwane's chief of staff even though she did not have the required qualifications.  She resigned, reportedly at executive mayor Solly Msimanga's behest, on Thursday.  An investigation was instituted to probe her appointment and the qualifications listed on her assessment form for the position.
