The Road Traffic Infringement Agency (RTIA) on Wednesday announced that it has fired CFO Palesa Moalusi, after a forensic investigation uncovered financial irregularities.

“The dismissal is on the basis of several financial irregularities regarding the improper extension of service contracts
with various third-party suppliers,” said the RTIA.

“The charges also entail the incorrect reporting of the company’s performance during the 2017/2018 financial year.”

The RTIA said an “extensive investigation” into allegations of misconduct has led to the summary dismissal of Moalusi, the agency’s CFO.

“The dismissal is as a result of the findings of guilt against various charges of misconduct levelled against Ms. Moalusi during the disciplinary hearing,” said RTIA.

Commenting on the dismissal, RTIA Chairperson Bongekile Zulu said: “We are committed to combating corruption, serious misconduct, and ensuring the effective functioning of the organisation”.

Zulu added: “We provide a vital service to the public and this kind of misconduct cannot be tolerated.”

“As a public entity, our function is to serve the people of South Africa and further our country’s socio-economic
development.

RTIA acting Registrar. Matsemela Moloi said: “We continue to be dedicated to fulfilling this mandate in all that we do”

The agency said Caiphus Matjie will act as CFO.
