Questions raised over qualifications of Tshwane EMS Head

Questions have been raised over the qualifications of The City of Tshwane's Emergency Services Head Previn Govender.

The South African Municipal Workers Union (SAMWU) in Tshwane wrote to Executive Mayor Solly Msimanga raising concerns over the matter after some of its members alleged that Govender misrepresented his credentials.

Samwu regional secretary Mpho Tladinyane explains.

Our members brought to our attention that the Chief of Emergency Services has misrepresented his qualification. They allege that he indicated he had a qualification that equals to NQF level 7, but our members say it is not correct.

We wrote to the city manager to say these are the allegations that have been raised against the chief of emergency services, can you either confirm or deny. As we speak now, the matter is with the city manager.
