DISGUSTING. Suspended Gauteng Film Commission CEO, Andile Mbeki, is still paid over R1 million to sit at home more than a year after his suspension over serious allegations of insubordination and ill-treatment of staffers.
Andile Mbeki, the suspended CEO of the Gauteng Film Commission (GFC) is still paid more than R1 million per year to sit at home - more than a year after his suspension in February 2017 over serious allegations of insubordination and ill-treatment of staffers.
The Gauteng Film Commission that is supposed to use its resources to help and support South Africa's film and TV industry, especially in the Gauteng province, has failed to have any disciplinary hearing in more than a year for Andile Mbeki.
The revelation that Andile Mbeki is still pocketing a massive salary while doing absolutely nothing at the Gauteng Film Commission was made by the sports MEC Faith Mazibuko, who in the provincial legislature revealed that he is still being paid after being on suspension for over a year.
Andile Mbeki was appointed in September 2014 and got suspended in February 2017 following serious allegations of insubordination and ill-treatment of staffers, as well as allegedly illegally recording Faith Mazibuko's conversation during a meeting and distributing the conversation on social media without seeking her permission.
Now there's reportedly plans underway to seek "an amicable resolution to part ways" and for Andile Mbeki to exit the Gauteng Film Commission without any disciplinary hearing.
