    Default Tshwane mayor hired chief of staff without required qualifications

    Marietha Aucamp, the chief of staff for the mayor of Tshwane, landed the R1.2m per year job despite not having the required qualifications.

    News24 has established that Mayor Solly Msimanga was part of the interview panel.

    The City of Tshwane's failure to apply for a waiver for Aucamp is in contravention of the Local Government Act, which demands that municipalities apply for a waiver from the minister of co-operative governance if a potential employee does not have suitable qualifications.

    The job advert required that the candidates have a bachelor's degree or equivalent qualification.

    Aucamp claims that she applied for the job anyway because of the waiver provision.

    Msimanga's office has admitted that there was no waiver when she was appointed group head of the office of the executive mayor of Tshwane.

    When News24 sent a series of questions to him, the Tshwane mayor's response, through his spokesperson, was that he played no role in the recruitment process.

    ANC-lite finally growing up to become just as the ANC.

    They only way to recover from this scandal would be to fire Aucamp AND Msimanga.

    Join the club Msimanga. Your party leader is already part of it!

    Bachelors degree for glorified personal assistant/office manager post. Government requirements for posts are most times totally ridiculous in the sense that they want people with degrees to fulfil clerical work.

    Another AA appointment without the required qualifications?

    So the issue here is that a waiver was not applied for?

    No, the DA is very serious about doing things in a transparent manner, let's not forget that in some municipality the DA called the Hawks on one of their own to show how serious they are about clean governance. If Msimanga does not heed this warning he might find himself being very foreign to the clean culture of the DA, like De Lille.

    Waivers aside, when does it become okay to hire a candidate without the required qualifications?

    The DA must be very serious then about this AA thing, I was doubting them these days...

    Experience and the skills that go along with it is also a thing, thus the waiver process exists.
