Cross Border Road Transport Agency staff members lodged the allegations with former transport minister, Joe Maswanganyi, in September last year, but the board has still not put their chief executive, Sipho Khumalo, under precautionary suspension.Maswanganyi ordered the board to investigate the allegations before he lost his job when President Cyril Ramaphosa replaced Jacob Zuma and reshuffled his Cabinet.The board, according to Cross Border insiders, had not moved an inch on Maswanganyi instruction because Khumalo had neither been suspended nor hauled before a disciplinary tribunal since the complaint was lodged.Khumalo has denied every allegation levelled against him in a sworn but unsigned statement he wrote to City Press.Disgruntled Cross Border staff members gave City Press the list of complaints, and said that they were concerned that the board was treating Khumalo with kid gloves.The allegations against Khumalo, which are detailed in the letter of complaint, are that:He has a daughter with his former personal assistant. City Press has seen the letter of the transfer. The former PA was then made operator relations officer for tourism in April;Khumalo is also accused of transferring the function of law enforcement to the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) in March last year despite two sets of legal advice disputing such a move as illegal.
