The three have been implicated in investigative reports regarding allegations of violating the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA); serious breaches of statutes, regulations and corporate governance; and unlawful conduct in relation to Transnet’s questionable procurement of 1,064 diesel and electric locomotives.

Gama, Mdletshe and Jiyane have now been given an opportunity to give the board reasons why they should not be suspended.
