The minister is going to the High Court to remove irregular appointments in the Department of Public Works.

Minister of Public Works Patricia De Lille is going to the High Court to put aside irregular appointments in the department made between 2017 and 2018.

The Public Service Commission found that 688 officials had been irregularly chosen.

Minister of Public Works Patricia De Lille explains to Kieno Kammies the decision to go the High Court to have 688 officials removed from office after it was found by the Public Service Commission that they had been irregularly appointed.

The previous minister Thula Nxesi asked the Public Service Commission to investigate the 688 appointments of staff from different levels.

She says the first report has found 12 out of 37 appointments in top senior management structure were irregularly appointed.

There were various non-compliance issues and the department then went to the Labour Court to seek a declaratory order to review and set aside the appointments already made.

It is before the court and she says they await the outcome.

The second report will look at the middle management and then will also review the lower structures of the organisation, she says.

It impacts severely on service delivery if you have people are not qualified, especially for senior management.
