newsNews24 reports that a senior manager in the Ntabankulu Municipality in the Eastern Cape is facing a charge of theft after she allegedly stole R90,000 from the municipal kitty.  

Ntabankulu mayor Tsileng Sobuthongo advised that the revenue manager had been served with an intent to suspend.  Sobuthongo said the money had been stolen in small amounts from October 2019.  The manager has apparently admitted to stealing the money and has apologised.  The municipality is one of the Eastern Cape's rural towns that relies on government grant funding.  Most of its revenue is from waste collection and traffic fines.  DA chairperson in the Alfred Nzo district, Wonga Potwana, claimed there was an agreement with the CFO for the revenue manager to repay the money in instalments, but that has been strongly denied by the mayor.  Potwana commented:  "The municipality, through the mayor, must open a case and, with the evidence in hand, she must be expelled and recoup the municipality monies."
