Corruption watch is calling for accountability following mismanagement of funds meant for workers. this week the watch dog organisation released a report on the temporarily workers relieve scheme which was meant to provide support to those who could not work during the hard lock-down when most industries where closed. while the unemployment insurance fund (UIF) paid out billions of rands to companies, not all employees received the funds due to them. the question is, what happened to the money?, Who stole the funds meant for employees to be able to feed their families?.
good news is that Marsha Bronkhost acting commissioner of (UIF) confirmed that it is true that money was stolen and they already appointed Auditing firms to investigate thoroughly on this matter and they are confirming and auditing weather the workers received their money. Marsha confirmed that if is found that the employees did not pay the money to employees, they will open the case with police services interms of fraud and corruption management as this is not acceptable at all. She also indicated that some companies were working normally, receiving profit from their clients at the same time claiming money for the relief fund. decent investigations is going to be conducted on every company that received the relief funds and legal actions will be taken to those found accountable. most sectors that were affected most were Construction companies, Private sectors, security companies, Cleaning, Petrol stations and etc. but the audit already started and they targeted all sectors.
