“The situation has deteriorated to an extent that I am not able to make untainted deductions on your actions and responses. The breakdown of our relationship has left the department in a stalemate.”
This is one of the accusations levelled at former communications department director-general Mamodupi Mohlala by communications minister Siphiwe Nyanda in his letter of dismissal to her, dated 23 July.
TechCentral has secured a copy of the letter of termination, which we publish in full below, from court papers filed by Mohlala’s attorneys earlier this week.
In the letter, Nyanda says: “Despite your submissions to the contrary, I am not convinced that there [is] still any trust that may be rekindled to sustain any meaningful employer-employee relationship.”
In the letter, Nyanda promises to pay Mohlala the equivalent of 12 months of salary.
Mohlala has rejected the offer and is taking Nyanda to court, claiming she was dismissed unlawfully. — Staff reporter, TechCentral
