Salga: Unqualified staff cannot be fired

Aug 07 2012 16:41
Cape Town - Local government cannot fire unqualified staff, said South African Local Government Association, reports the Business Day.

This follows Cabinet's instruction to Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Richard Baloyi to ensure municipalities employ suitably qualified financial officers.

Earlier, auditor-general Terence Nombembe's estimated that 70% of municipal officials were not qualified to perform their duties.

South African Local Government Association (Salga) CEO Xolile George said that the inefficient workers were contractual obligations for the municipalities and cannot be let go but trained.

"Our appetite is not to fire people but to capacitate them.”
