South African Social Security Agency CEO Thokozani Magwaza has been let go by Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini.
Magwaza joins a not insignificant rundown of Directors-General and senior authorities in government who have been terminated by their managers lately.
The Standing Committee on Public Accounts had griped right off the bat Monday about death dangers against Magwaza.
This came at the time Sassa was finishing an agreement with the South African Post Office to pay social gifts to 17 million recipients, said Scopa administrator Themba Godi.
The agreement amongst Sassa and Sapo would have supplanted the agreement with Cash Paymaster Services after it was tossed out by the Constitutional Court early this year.
Scopa had likewise cautioned that Magwaza could join the rundown of DGs terminated by their Ministers as a result of contradictions.
Godi had communicated bolster for Magwaza and that the state must give assurance.
In an announcement Dlamini’s representative Lumka Oliphant affirmed the cutting out of Magwaza.
“The Minister of Social Development, Ms Bathabile Dlamini and the CEO of Sassa, Mr Thokozani Magwaza, have agreed to terminate the services of the latter after a consultative process led by the head of legal services, advocate Nkosinathi Dladla, in terms of the provisions of his contract of employment,” said Oliphant
