PRETORIA – The Federation of Unions of South Africa (Fedusa) says it will hold the managers of state-owned entities personally responsible for corruption and mismanagement and have them declared delinquent directors.

This was among the comments made at a briefing in Pretoria on Thursday where public servants union Public Servants Association announced it was rejoining the federation.

The move has strengthened Fedusa’s membership number to over 700,000.

Fedusa’s Dennis George says they have resolved to make examples of state-owned enterprises directors found to be corrupt or have mismanaged state funds.

“Specifically Mr Brian Molefe and Dr Ben Ngubane, they don’t know what’s waiting for them. We’re going to prosecute them and have them declared delinquent directors.”

He says they will hold them personally accountable.

“And we’ll work with Asset Protector Unit to make sure that they pay for the bad things that they have done to make up for the losses.”

George says warned government officials to use the public resources properly.
