Members of the public are once more warned not to ever pay for government or municipal jobs.
It has once more come to the attention of the municipality that there are people who are conning job seekers to make payments to get employment from the municipality. The Ray Nkonyeni Municipality as a government entity and probably even the private sector do not require job seekers to pay in order to be employed.
Through the Anti-fraud and Corruption Hotline, it has come to our attention that there may be a syndicate which is coordinated or led by a bogus Mr Bonga Mathebula and Dave who are claiming to be employed by the municipality. Ray Nkonyeni Municipality wants to categorically state that there are no such employees and they are con employees who are hell bent to rip off those who are in desperate need for being employed. Members of the public or community members are requested to never pay or offer to pay someone for them to be employed whether by the municipality or anywhere.
Despite previous and numerous warnings in this regard, it seems people are still tempted to be conned by these ruthless people. It should be noted that the municipality has a clear policy or procedure in employing people, the posts are openly advertised, and then shortlisted applicants are invited to undergo the same process of being assessed for the suitability for that post. There also be no way that a person who has not been employed yet can be required to pay for training or uniform, in actual fact, employees do not pay for employment training and uniform.
Government or municipal jobs are not for sale and therefore if someone demands some payment from you to be employed, you must report that person to the nearest police station or call our Anti-Fraud and Corruption Hotline 0801 111 660 or the Presidential Hotline 17737.
