The Department of Public Service and Administration says close to 300 government employees are moonlighting as municipal councillors, in direct contravention of the Public Service Act.

The Head of the department’s Ethics, Integrity and Disciplinary Technical Assistance Unit, Salomon Hoogenraad-Vermaak, says the workers should have resigned after being elected.

Hoogenraad-Vermaak says the department is in the process of establishing whether the law has been complied with.
