Jo’burg senior trade and investment official fired for corruption

The contract of a senior official responsible for the City of Johannesburg’s trade and investment projects was terminated today after he was found guilty of wrongfully influencing the allocation of tenders.

“The official engaged in private business without prior consent from the City, breached our code of ethics, influenced procurement decisions for their own benefit and acted against the interests of the City,” said strategic adviser to the office of the MMC for Economic Development, Andrew Stewart.

He also noted that this was the result of the major steps taken over the past few months to combat corruption across the city.
