This after the Public Service Commission’s investigation found that 688 officials were irregularly appointed between 2017 and 2018.

The Public Service Commission has submitted the first part of its report, and they looked at 688 appointments of staff between April 2017 and March 2018. They have given us the first phase where it found that 12 out of 37 appointments in the senior management level were appointed irregularly and there were compliant issues.— Patricia de Lille, Minister - Public Works and Infrastructure
She adds that in the meantime the department has approached the labour court to set aside the appointment of senior officials.
