Controversial Letebele canned from CEO post

Sapa
Johannesburg - Ntau Letebele's appointment as new CEO of Great North Transport in Limpopo has been cancelled, the bus company's board said on Thursday.

"The appointment happened on January 16. But today after reviewing all the processes that were followed... we terminated the contract," GNT chairman Muthuhadini Madzivhandila said.

While reviewing Ntebele's appointment the board discovered that not all procedures had been followed.

GNT is a subsidiary of the Limpopo economic development agency, a provincial government entity.

Letebele, who is under an internal investigation over a multi-million rand tender, resigned as head of the Limpopo roads and transport department earlier this month.

The tender allegedly partly benefited former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema.

The resignation came days after the announcement of an investigation into the department's awarding of a R53m contract to On-Point Engineers.

Malema's business partner Lesiba Gwangwa is chief executive of On-Point.

In October, public protector Thuli Madonsela found Letebele's conduct in awarding the bid to On-Point improper and that it constituted maladministration.

She found On-Point and Malema benefited improperly from the contract.

The National Education, Health and Allied Workers' Union had called for Letebele's appointment to be revoked, and for Limpopo economic development MEC Pinky Kekana to be investigated.
