CAPE TOWN – Water and Sanitation Minister Nomvula Mokonyane has fired the entire Overberg Water Board following financial irregularities.

A forensic investigation found that the board had failed to protect the assets and financial records of the government entity with honesty and integrity.

This relates to irregularities discovered in financial claims made by board members prior to and in 2016.

Mokonyane wrote to the board in April asking them to explain why they should not be removed.

Minister spokesperson Mlimandlela Ndamase says: “She had received responses in May 2017 and she has since, after receiving those responses, taken the decision and found it reasonable to then take a decision to terminate the term of office of the board.”
