transnetlogo thumb100 Fin24 reports that further provisional suspensions of staff might be on the cards at Transnet as auditors at the state-owned port and freight rail operator continue to comb through past forensic reports.  

According to acting Group CEO Tau Morwe, Transnet was in the process of assessing 345 reports in respect of which the recommendations and findings might not have been implemented.  Transnet announced on Monday that eight senior executives had been sent letters of precautionary suspension.  Their names have not been made public.  Morwe said it was likely that more precautionary suspension notices would be served.  Transnet's audit department is being assisted by an external auditor in assessing the reports.  The company would apparently give affected staff an opportunity to appeal the suspension notices.  In a separate matter, Morwe indicated that two Transnet officials suspended in September 2018, Thamsanqa Jiyane and Lindiwe Mdletshe, had been charged and would undergo disciplinary proceedings in February.
