More woes for “errant” ANC councilor
Brand South Africa suspends Tebogo Mamorobela
Before the dust could settle after the ANC in Vhembe region in Limpopo suspended Makhado municipality councilor Tebogo Mamorobela because of her alleged breach of lockdown regulations announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa, Brand South Africa has also joined the fray.
Brand South Africa has also announced that it has suspended the councilor from its Board of Trustees and has launched an enquiry into possible misconduct and bringing it into disrepute.
Minister in the Presidency Jackson Mthembu has said he has received a report from Brand South Africa indicating her suspension in terms of Act 25 of the Trust Deed following allegations that she violated lockdown regulations in terms of the National Management Disaster Act by holding a birthday party during lockdown.
The minister said he viewed the allegations in a serious light.
“It is for this reason that we fully agree with the board’s decision to institute a full independent enquiry into the matter,” said minister Mthembu.
Earlier The ANC in Vhembe came down hard on her and slapped her with a suspension letter.
Mamorobela has been told to recuse herself from the activities of the municipality with immediate effect until her matter has been concluded by the court.
The political management team of the municipality has also ordered that she be docked one month’s salary from her allowance.
Since she is a fulltime councilor the ANC will appoint another councilor to act on her behalf.
The ANC also decided to refer her matter to the party’s ethics committee.
She has also been ordered to issue a public apology.
