transnetlogo thumb100 EWN reports that eight senior managers at Transnet have been served with suspension notices.  

The employees were apparently served with the letters on Friday and have until Tuesday to respond to the parastatal to indicate why it should not go ahead with disciplinary proceedings.  The suspensions arise from various forensic reports, which contained recommendations which were never executed.  Transnet's acting group chief executive Tau Morwe would not reveal who the eight senior managers were, but he said that the parastatal had gone back over 345 forensic and audit reports from previous years.  Morwe also said that more people might still be suspended.  Last month, Transnet advised that summonses had been issued to eight former top executives, including former CEO Brian Molefe and former CFO Anoj Singh, as part of legal steps to recoup an estimated R1.3 billion in looted funds during their tenure.
