The department of Home affairs fired the Chief Director who recommended that Sherperd Bushiri and his family should be issued Permanent Residence Permits which they did not deserve.
Ronney Marhule, the Chief Director for Permitting, was found guilty of two counts of misconduct relating to dishonesty and negligence at the conclusion of a lengthy disciplinary hearing which lasted for almost a year.
Home affairs Spokesperson SIya Qoza said this is after Marhule tried in vain to stop the disciplinary process on at least three occasions at the Labour Court and the Labour Appeal Court.
“The first count related to recommending the approval of the Permanent Residence Permit applications of Bushiri, his spouse and two children. The second count related to recommending the approval of the Permanent Residence Permit applications of Mr Mohamed Afzal Motiwala and Ms Fatima Ebrahim.”
Qoza said the Chairperson of the Disciplinary Hearing found that Marhule showed no remorse and that the “relationship of trust between the employer and the employee has broken down and cannot be restored”.
