Dirco South Africa, fired its financial officer over invicible land purchase.
The Department of International Relations and Cooperation (Dirco) has ended the administrations of its CFO, Caiphus Ramashau, following a R118 million New York arrangement to purchase land which didn’t exist.
Dirco representative Clayson Monyela said the “fruitless undertaking” was intended to buy a real estate land in New York to oblige South Africa’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations and New York Consulate.
“This (end of working relationship) follows the finish of the disciplinary body of evidence established against him.
”Mr Ramashau dealt with indictments identified with unpredictable consumption caused by the division on a fruitless venture to buy a real estate parcel in New York (USA) to oblige South Africa’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations and New York Consulate,” said Monyela.
Last month, Dirco rubbished the Democratic Alliance’s claim that Minister Naledi Pandor misled Parliament’s global relations and co-activity portfolio panel about the conclusion of the division’s report on the R118 million New York land project.
Pandor’s representative, Lunga Ngqengelele, said the DA’s claim regarding Pandor was evidence that the party needed comprehension about the division’s interior cycles.
“It is babble that the priest misled Parliament’s portfolio advisory group. All the clergyman said was that the report was not settled and she had additionally demonstrated that the portfolio panel would be given the report once it was finished.”
Ngqengelele reacted to the DA after the party delivered an assertion claiming that Pandor had misled the board when she said her examination report into the R118m in unpredictable consumption on the New York Pilot Project was not yet complete.
In 2019, during previous Dirco serve Maite Nkoana-Mashabane’s residency, Parliament’s global relations and co-activity portfolio council found that citizens’ cash was spent on a real estate parcel in New York.
A board assignment went to New York to investigate the land, just to track down an old, bedraggled structure. The inefficient buy was purportedly made to oblige South Africa’s ambassadors.
Following an examination by Dirco, Ramashau was suspended regarding the inefficient use on the non-existent land bargain.
