MsunduziThe Witness reports that the return this week of Msunduzi’s suspended municipal manager Lulamile Mapholoba to his office was short-lived.

The Durban Labour Court’s ruling on Monday that Mapholoba’s February suspension was unlawful took another turn on Tuesday. Mapholoba could not commence his duties as he was served with another suspension letter. The Labour Court on Monday ruled that Mapholoba’s suspension in February was illegal, and that he should return to work following his urgent application for the reversal of his suspension pending his appeal at the SA Local Government Bargaining Council (SALGBC). He argued that proper procedure had not been followed to effect his February suspension. But, Msunduzi spokesperson Ntobeko Mkhize said Mapholoba was served with another suspension letter pending an investigation into allegations of misconduct. Mkhize advised that a council meeting held last week had resolved to suspend Mapholoba after an independent investigator found prima facie cases to be investigated against him.
