Wasteman boss suspended


Johannesburg -    President of the Institute of Waste Management of Southern Africa (IWMSA) has been reinstated after stepping down last year during an investigation into the illegal dumping of medical waste, the organisation said on Friday.

Vincent Charnley stepped down to allow the Green Scorpions to investigate whether the Wasteman Group, of which his company Phambili Wasteman was a wholly owned subsidiary, was involved in "wrongdoing", IWMSA said in a statement.

Following the completion of the investigation, CEO of Wasteman Holdings Olivier Meyer and Welkom businessman Gavin Brasher were formally charged, appeared in court and released on bail earlier this month. Brasher and five co-accused would be back in the Welkom
Magistrate's Court on July 27.

Meyer was also suspended by the Wasteman board.

Acting IWMSA president Stan Jewaskiewitz said the organisation had established Charnley was not implicated in the matter and not the subject of ongoing investigations.

"I am relieved and delighted that the results of investigations conducted by the Green Scorpions specifically exonerate both myself
and Phambili Wasteman and that my name, reputation and integrity remain intact," Charnley said.
