Masualle gives Hackula the bullet

Premier Phumulo Masualle has fired his longest serving accounting officer, Bea Hackula.

Hackula was working as the superintendent-general in the cooperative governance and traditional affairs (Cogta) department.

She was served with a letter of suspension in April by the premier. The office of the premier’s chief of staff Nandi Sikutshwa yesterday confirmed that Hackula had been fired.

“In fact, she was given a hearing. There was a disciplinary process which was instituted by the premier,” said Sikutshwa.
