Deadline for public servants to stop doing business with government

Public servants have until January 2017 to stop any business activities that involve any organ of State, says Advocate Mahlodi Muofhe, special advisor to the Minister of Public Service and Administration.

Public servants are also prohibited from being a director of a public or private company which conducts business with an organ of state.

They will have to choose or resign.

The regulation that's coming in is saying you have declared your interest that you are also doing business with government, but you are given until January to withdraw from doing business with government.

Advocate Mahlodi Muofhe, special advisor to the Minister of Public Service and Administration

What Minister Ramatlhodi seeks to say is that all public servants are not supposed to be doing business with government.
