transnetlogo thumb100 ANA reports that Transnet said on Wednesday that it had suspended its former group supply chain officer Edward Thomas pending investigations into various serious allegations of misconduct involving a number of contracts.  

Transnet indicated that Thomas, currently group general manager for finance, was informed on Thursday last week of the company’s intention to suspend him, and was invited to make a written representation as to why he should not be suspended.  The state-owned logistics company said it had considered his representation and was of the view that he had not provided sufficient reasons as to why he should not be placed on suspension pending completion of an investigation.  Early this week, Transnet also announced that it would continue with disciplinary action against its group treasurer Phetolo Ramosebudi, who has since resigned.  Ramosebudi was also issued with a notice of intent to suspend him, but opted to render his resignation.
