SamsaNews24 reports that three SA Maritime Safety Authority (Samsa) executives have been placed on precautionary suspension, amid allegations of misconduct.

The Samsa Board has placed chief operations officer Sobantu Tilayi, company secretary Moyahabo Raphadu, and chief human capital officer Lesego Mashishi under precautionary suspension, with pay, as of Monday. The precautionary suspensions would allow the board to undertake an independent forensic investigation, Samsa said in a statement. "The decision to put the three executives on precautionary suspension follows from whistleblowing and reports of alleged misconduct received from external and internal stakeholders. A thorough forensic investigation will be undertaken on the range of serious allegations related to the three executives," the statement indicated. In the interim, the board has mandated acting CEO Tsepiso Taoana-Mashiloane to appoint suitable officials to act in all three positions for the duration of the precautionary suspensions in order to ensure business continuity. The embattled organisation has faced allegations from whistleblowers in the past (see full report).
