limpopo thumb100 The Citizen reports that Limpopo Premier Stan Mathabatha has suspended the province’s chief director of communications Phuti Seloba.  

He has been put under precautionary suspension with immediate effect after allegations were made that he was behind leaks of sensitive information from the premier’s office.  Mathabatha’s spokesperson Kenny Mathiba said Seloba would be given a chance to respond to the allegations levelled against him.  Seloba’s headache started after his alleged secret relationship with EFF Limpopo leader, Jossey Buthane, soured.  Last week, Seloba took Buthane to the Limpopo High Court in Polokwane on charges of defamation.  According to Seloba, Buthane defamed him by posting allegations on Facebook that he was a rapist.  In February, it had been reported that a Botswana woman had accused Seloba of raping her in a hotel, but the case was later withdrawn.
