Entire UIF management is suspended, says Nxesi


Thulas Nxesi, Labour Minister said there’s been a suspension of the entire management of Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF).

This announcement was made after the briefing made by the Auditor General who said during the lockdown, he found flaws in the UIF system.

Nxesi said the Special Investigating Unit will now have ample time to conclude on its investigation since there has been a suspension.

The DG of the department of labour and employment has suspended the UIF management, the CFO, the COO and the head of the supply chain.These moves allow for the SIU to conclude its forensic investigations completely,” he said.

Nxesi further said there must be an account for all the payments made in the UIF.

He added that currently, 38 court cases have been opened against some individuals and businesses in connection to COVID-19.
