Makhura has since reiterated that those involved in #Covid19Corruption must all be brought to justice.
Professor Mkhululi Lukhel few days ago was placed under precautionary suspension with immediate effect Premier David Makhura has placed Gauteng Health’s provincial head of department.
He is alleged to have failed to properly monitor issued Covid-19 personal protective equipment (PPEs) tenders.
Makhura revealed that he was acting on the recommendations of the Special Investigating Unit following the update report presented to him on 22 September 2020.
“The Special Investigating Unit found that the HOD failed to exercise his responsibility in the awarding of contracts to certain companies for the procurement of goods and services in relation to the government’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic,” Makhura said.
He said the alleged actions or omission by the HOD may have resulted in the department incurring the fruitless and wasteful expenditure.
“Professor Lukhele will remain in precautionary suspension pending the completion of the investigations by the SIU and disciplinary proceedings for misconduct,” Makhura said.
However, Lukhele faces more troubles as the Public Service Commission (PSC) last month asked the office of the Premier and Health MEC to take disciplinary action against him following the irregular appointment of Kabelo Lehloenya as Health Department Chief Financial Officer in 2018.
In August, Gauteng PSC Commissioner Mike Seloane confirmed that the Gauteng health department failed to follow proper public service regulations when it head-hunted Lehloenya for the post in 2018.
