pandorNews24 reports that on Friday, Department of International Relations and Cooperation (Dirco) Minister Naledi Pandor advised that the department’s suspended Director-General (DG), Kgabo Mahoai, was no longer employed by the department.

She stated: "Please be advised that the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (Dirco) has terminated its employment relationship with Mr KE Mahoai following the conclusion of a disciplinary case instituted against the director-general." Pandor added that ambassador Nonceba Losi would continue as acting director-general until further notice. President Cyril Ramaphosa delegated Pandor to institute disciplinary proceedings against Mahoai over a botched R118-million New York land deal. Last month, Mahoai was found guilty of gross negligence, gross dereliction of duty and breach of legal obligation, as well as irregular, wasteful and fruitless expenditure. Judge Cynthia Pretorius handed down judgment in his disciplinary case on 23 August.
