CAPE TOWN - Former Oudtshoorn acting municipal manager, Ronnie Lottering, will face disciplinary action.

This for allegedly flouting municipal regulations.

Lottering is one of several senior officials accused of misconduct. Another managed resigned yesterday.

The municipality has consistently denied the disciplinary matters is related to a Hawks investigation which followed a forensic report that identified more than 132 instances of misconduct, corruption and fraud.

Municipal spokesperson, Ntobeko Mangqwengqwe, says internal investigations are still on-going.

"Mr. Lottering was due to appear between the 10th and 12th of August but his case has been postponed until 30 August. So all the cases are continuing and it's going to be difficult to preempt the exact time and dates when the cases will end."
