Statement issued by Bongani Msomi – UDM Secretary General

The United Democratic Movement (UDM) is shocked to learn that two senior managers at the Eastern Cape Legislature, implicated in a sex-for-jobs and jobs-for-pals scandal, have been rewarded with senior posts in another department.

Human Resources management head Malibongwe Ngcai and strategic manager Basil Mase are now heading Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs.

This is a farce and it is saddening that corrupt officials are rewarded for their misdeeds. It is unfortunate that the ruling party does not realise the negative impact cadre deployment has on the nation.

No one even wonders why the officials who are high up in hierarchy are implicated in such acts. The looting of the state resources is continuing unabated and no wonder the country has been degraded to a junk status.
