Limpopo govt spokesperson’s suspension found to be illegal and unfair
“Making an example, Mr Buthane testified that, even if the premier comes smelling of alcohol, Mr Seloba ought to have said it is perfume and not alcohol,” Maoka said.
“He (Seloba) knew and understood the impact of what the information would be to the executive administration of the Limpopo government. He intentionally wanted to undermine the authority of the premier and bring the name of the Limpopo government into disrepute,” he said.
Seloba referred comment to the National Health, Education and Allied Workers Union (Nehawu).
Nehawu hinted in a statement that the dismissal sanction may be challenged.
The union said Seloba could not submit mitigating factors because his attorney could not be reached due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
