VBS linked accounting officers and mayors of Greater Giyani Municipality has been suspended

The South African Municipal Workers Union (Samwu) in Limpopo says it welcomes the suspensions of some of the VBS implicated officials 

at two municipalities, but they still want all accounting officers and mayors who authorised investments into the mutual bank to be removed from their positions.

The Greater Giyani Municipality has placed its Chief Financial Officer on precautionary suspension and the Vhembe District municipality has suspended its Chief Financial Officer and Municipal Manager for failure to implement the Municipal Finance Management Act.

Samwu provincial secretary Patrick Aphane says the move by the Greater Giyani Municipality to only suspend its CFO is avoiding accountability.

Aphane says the suspensions are diverting attention from the real culprits because some of these officials were initially suspended for different reasons, before the revelations of events at VBS Mutual Bank.
