Drewan Baird. Oudtshoorn. 17 July 2014. 07h15. The acting MM yesterday issued a curt media statement, announcing the immediate suspension of three municipal officials:
Mr Jean Cox, Manager: Streets and Storm Water; and Mr Frikkie van Staden, Assistant Supervisor: Streets and Storm Water, were today suspended pending an investigation bearing upon their responsibilities.
Mr Jaco Eastes, Manager: Planning & Development, was similarly suspended on July 15.
All three officials have the right to provide reasons why their suspensions should not be upheld.
All necessary steps have been taken to avoid service delivery compromise.
