The Office of the Executive Mayor in the City of Ekurhuleni, has noted social media allegations peddled against MMC Lesiba Mpya and the Chief of Staff, Reckson Hasani. The allegations are around the alleged usage of the City of Ekurhuleni-issued credit cards at the ANC celebrations this past weekend, to pay a bill.
According to the office of the mayor, these allegations are unfortunate as the City of Ekurhuleni has no credit cards for any executive or staff member.
“The two public representatives of the City of Ekurhuleni further clarified that they weren’t at the alleged venue, at that time of the morning,” the office stated.
“As the City of Ekurhuleni, we uphold the firm belief that every public servant must act and conduct themselves in a responsible manner. We remain servants of our people. We regret the sensationalism created by false allegations about the public representatives of the City of Ekurhuleni.
“As the City, we remain focused on delivering service to our people and ensuring that we strive towards unity – and delivering on our mandate and social contract with the people of Ekurhuleni.”
