Pikitup MD cleared of corruption charges
Amanda Nair was suspended after being implicated in tender irregularities.
JOHANNESBURG - Waste collector, Pikitup, says its Managing Director Amanda Nair will resume her duties this week after being formally cleared of charges relating to tender fraud.
Nair was suspended after being implicated in the alleged irregular awarding of a R263 million tender.
Following recommendations from an independent inquiry, the new Pikitup board says it has decided to clear her of wrongdoing.
Nair was suspended on full pay last year after her conduct in the awarding of a multimillion rand tender was questioned by National Treasury.
Following a lengthy inquiry, Environment and Infrastructure Affairs MMC Matshediso Mfikoe has confirmed the MD has been cleared of all charges.
"The new board agreed to implement the recommendations of the presiding officer."
The MD was accused of awarding the tender to a company implicated in acts of fraud and corruption despite repeated concerns from the company's examinations board.
