pikitupTimesLive reports that the City of Johannesburg has suspended senior officials over their alleged bungling of a Pikitup fleet tender.  

The city officials reportedly failed to renew the fleet contract‚ disrupting refuse removal services in several suburbs.  "In an effort to ensure consistent and reliable service delivery to our residents‚ the City has decided to suspend senior officials who were responsible for the processing of the Pikitup fleet tender‚ pending an investigation into allegations of misconduct‚" said Ntombi Khumalo‚ MMC for Corporate and Shared Services.  The City’s leadership took this step after refuse removal services were disrupted two weeks ago as a result of the inadequately managed contract.  Khumalo added:  “As an interim measure‚ the City has appointed officials to act in these positions to ensure the tenders are finalised as a matter of urgency and advertised speedily."
