Samwu puts hand up to testify against Pikitup boss
Amanda Nair is on special leave pending an investigation into corruption claims against her.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African Municipal Workers' Union (Samwu) said it was ready to give testimony at the inquiry established to investigate Pikitup managing director Amanda Nair.
Yesterday, the refuse removal company placed Nair on special leave pending an investigation into allegations of corruption against her.
The company said this was only procedural and that she had not done anything wrong.
Meanwhile, the union said that a dossier it had submitted to Pikitup, containing evidence of corrupt activities involving Nair, may have been behind the decision to suspend Nair.
Samwu's Paul Tlhabang said: "If there is a need for us to be part of that process then we will be part of that process."
