Transnet suspends Executive Committee members

08 March 2019

Transnet is a business in transition. The primary aim being to restore confidence and deliver on our mandate. We therefore need to be deliberate about improving our corporate governance and establish leadership (informed by principles of integrity and accountability). The journey also involves taking difficult decisions with the view to restoring confidence on Transnet. To this end, four of our Executive Committee members have been suspended, effective today.

The following Executives were suspended today:

·         Nonkululeko Sishi, the Group Human Resources Officer

·         Mlamuli Buthelezi, the Group Chief Operating Officer

·         Ravi Nair, the Chief Executive: Transnet Freight Rail

·         Shulami Qalinge, the Chief Executive: Transnet National Port Authority

Transnet is of the view that their continued presence in the workplace has the potential to jeopardize investigations into their alleged misconduct. Given the position they occupy it is almost impossible to investigate the allegations while they are at work. It is in the best interest of Transnet that they be placed on suspension on full pay with full benefits.

Transnet encourages all employees to work together to make Transnet great again. Our engagements need to be based on principles of service and integrity so that we are able to deliver upon our mandate to South Africa.
