UIF Commissioner Maruping placed on suspension

Johannesburg – Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) commissioner Tebogo Maruping has been placed on precautionary suspension.

Maruping has confirmed the decision but could not comment on the matter further.

The move comes after a recent Auditor-General probe into a Covid-19 relief benefit scheme.

A UIF briefing is currently undergoing, and took place just after the briefing by Labour Minister Thulas Nxesi.

The minister unpacked the findings of the Auditor-General in relation to the Covid-19 TERs Relief Fund Audit.

The development also comes as government and the ANC tries to deal with widespread allegations of wrongdoing in the spending of Covid-19 relief funds.
