parliamentEWN reports that a disciplinary panel has found suspended secretary to Parliament Gengezi Mgidlana guilty of serious misconduct and has recommended his summary dismissal.  

Mgidlana was put on precautionary leave in 2017 pending a disciplinary hearing on allegations against him of maladministration and abuse of power.  National Assembly Speaker Thandi Modise said it would now be up to both the National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) to decide on the matter.  Modise said Mgidlana had faced 13 charges.  One was withdrawn for lack of evidence and on five, he was found not guilty, as policy on these issues was unclear.  “He was found guilty on seven charges.  On four of the seven charges, he was found guilty of serious misconduct, with a sanction that was summary dismissal.  The other three charges were final warnings,” she advised.
