parliamentEWN reports that Parliament has announced that the Secretary to Parliament, Gengezi Mgidlana, has been granted special leave effective as of Friday.  

A statement issued by Parliament indicated that Mgidlana had written to the presiding officers requesting to be placed on special leave while allegations levelled against him made by the National Education Health and Allied Workers’ Union (Nehawu) were investigated.  The statement states that the presiding officers recently referred several allegations regarding administrative irregularities on the part of the Secretary to an independent audit committee of Parliament for investigation.  Parliamentary workers allege that Mgidlana has abused his position by taking unwarranted overseas trips, awarding himself a bursary and an ex gratia payment and corrupting Parliament's tender system.  It has been almost a year since Nehawu asked the Public Protector to probe Mgidlana’s conduct.
