The prisons commissioner, Xoliswa Sibeko, who has been sitting at home waiting patiently to be reinstated after she was found not guilty in a disciplinary hearing, has agreed to the termination of her contract.
According to the Correctional Services Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa Nqakula she has accepted the ending of her contract in return for a pay out of 700,000 rand.
Sibeko, who came to Correctional Services in a bizarre job swap from the Sports Department, was accused of mishandling her housing allowances, was in any case due to leave the department in August.
However the ministry has advertised her job, and a new commissioner is expected to be appointed at the beginning of the new financial year in April.
She had been accused of renting a 35 000 rand a month luxury property in Woodhill, Pretoria, even though an official residence was available to her. After being cleared of the charges, Mapisa-Nqakula extended Sibeko’s special leave, saying she was still studying the findings.
A shortlist of candidates for her post - currently filled in an acting capacity by Jennifer Schreiner - would be interviewed by a panel of ministers and senior government officials, with the appointment to be approved by the Cabinet."
