Johannesburg - The Roads Agency Limpopo's CFO hasbeen dismissed and two of his colleagues suspended for alleged fraud,corruption, and collusion involving more than R40m, the agency said on Monday.

The trio allegedly

flouted supply chain managementpolicies, colluded, shared sensitive information with potential tender bidders,committed fraud, and impersonated the CEO Maselaganye Matji in a legallybinding letter, it said.

Chief financial officer Kgotlo Rabothata was dismissedwhile his colleagues, supply chain manager Sam Lekganyane and legal servicessenior manager Mathews Mflatela, were suspended.

Rabothata, a registered chartered accountant and a memberof the South African Institute for Chartered Accountants, was appointed inApril last year.

He was sacked for dishonesty, gross negligence, andacting beyond the scope of his duties. He has approached the CCMA.

In an interview with the Bosveld Review after hisappointment, Rabothata said he would implement more internal controls and seeto it that supply chain management rules and regulations were followed.

"I don't want to lose my status as a CA; as a memberof Saica, one has to be ethical at all times. Throwing a stone into the watercauses a ripple effect; creates waves; we must share ideas and touch upcontrols," he said at the time.

Rabothata said called for stronger internal controls.

"Key positions need to be filled urgently, such as aleader for the supply chain management unit and a head for pro-active assuranceand internal controls. We have to satisfy the AG, political roleplayers and thepublic, who expect deliverables," he said.

On Monday, Matji said a preliminary investigation hadrevealed that a syndicate was paying some of the staff members to getinformation about the RAL's tenders.

He said he would not allow the agency's work to beundermined by few rotten apples.
