Public Service Minister Senzo Mchunu reveals staff on precautionary suspension cost the state more than R27m over three financial years

Up to 29 employees had been placed on suspension in national departments as of June 30, and 16 employees in provincial governments, with seven being recorded in the Western Cape, four in the Eastern Cape, two each in KwaZulu-Natal and North West and one in Gauteng.

Schreiber said the amount spent on suspended employees was shocking especially if one divided the amount by the number of employees.

Mchunu revealed that almost 1.1 million posts had been filled while there were 123 843 vacant posts in national and provincial departments and state-owned entities.

Provinces with the lowest percentage of vacant posts are Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Free State. Gauteng has 15997 vacancies (8.86%), KwaZulu-Natal 17145 (8.31%), and Free State 3830 (5.72%).
