A DPME Chief Director Allegedly Worked His Own Appointment And Discipline

DPME chief director Ntabozuko Nomlala accused of finalizing his own appointment, acting as both judge and carrying out his own disciplinary process.

According to recent reports, Ntabozuko Nomlala, a Chief Director in the Presidency’s Department of Planning, Monitoring & Evaluation (DPME), is accused of engineering his appointment to the post. There are also reports that he took charge of a disciplinary process in which he was both judge and offender.

Nomlala, who acts as the DPME’s head of human resources and corporate services, is alleged to have given himself a verbal warning following the disciplinary process held after he appointed a vehicle fleet manager who did not have the requisite driver’s licence.

According to a report by Daily Friend, the Public Service Commission (PSC) discovered that Nomlala had been involved in the irregular appointment of various senior officials, including himself. He is accused of designing the job specifications for his position as permanent chief director. He also helped shortlist candidates and set up the interview panel for his own hiring process.

Following the findings, the PSC immediately initiated a disciplinary process against Nomlala. But it was never finalised because the presiding officer had resigned from the public service and “failed to produce a report and verdict.”
