I have never held back any information about my qualifications - Marietha Aucamp

Aucamp was placed on special leave this week after it emerged she did not have the required qualifications as Chief of Staff.

Tshwane Mayor Solly Msimanga's former chief of staff, Marietha Aucamp, says she has never held back any information about her qualifications.

Aucamp resigned on Thursday after it emerged she did not have the required qualifications for the position.

She insists that she followed due process when she applied for the job.

There is a standard policy on recruitment for positions in the City of Tshwane, there is a formal application. In the application I only indicated that I have a standard ten as my highest qualification. I was then invited as a shortlisted candidate to an interview, received a letter that I am one of the preferred candidates, I did go through the competency assessment, my assessment came back as indicating that I was tested as superior competency and received the letter of appointment then.

Responding to questions surrounding a leaked document of her alleged application, Aucamp suggests it was fabricated.

I know that there is an investigation going on with regards to the leaking of it, the adding and leaving out of crucial documents and information in those personal files. I think it is leaked to some sabotage from inside the organisation.

I have never made secret or held back any information about my qualifications.

In a statement released on Thursday evening, Msimanga said he had asked Aucamp to resign and accepted her resignation.

While she has refused to go into detail, Aucamp says the mayor's statement is not a true reflection of events.

There is some of the statement that I do not agree with and I do not want to elaborate on it for the simple reason that that was not part of mine and the mayor's discussion. I know that the mayor did not write that statement so no I do not feel betrayed by the mayor.

If it was, then it is unfortunate.

Msimanga's spokesperson Samkelo Mgobozi says he was not privy to the conversation but the statement was approved by the mayor.

It was with the mayor's blessing that I released this statement because I was not privy to the conversation.
