Future of FS Kopanong Manager under threat  | News Article
After weeks of uncertainty and rife speculation over the future of the cash-strapped Kopanong Local Municipal manager Martin Kubeka, his position at the municipality looks to be under threat.

This as OFM News has reliably learned Kubeka was formally suspended on Friday, days after his special leave came to an end. 

Kubeka was put on 30 days' special leave in mid-March after a stand-off with the South African Municipal Workers Union (SAMWU) over a historic debt of at least R58 million, among other things. 

OFM News' Pulane Choane reports that he has also been accused of maladministration by irate Samwu affiliated employees.

This followed after the troubled municipality approached Cogta for financial assistance to launch a bid to interdict Samwu's strike in that municipality. 

Kopanong workers downed tools on February 26, citing non-payment of salaries and third party contributions as the reason.
