State rail company, Transnet, has dismissed its freight rail executive, Siyabonga Gama.

He was found guilty of signing contracts outside his mandate in an 18-million-Rand deal involving Communications Minister Siphiwe Nyanda.

Gama had applied to have the decision of his disciplinary hearing overturned by the South Gauteng High Court.

Transnet spokesman John Dludlu is quoted as saying the conclusion of this delayed matter paves the way for the company, to make permanent appointments in place of the acting positions that were required by the suspension and disciplinary action of Gama.

Prior to his suspension, Gama was believed to be one of the favourites for the group chief executive post that became vacant when Maria Ramos left Transnet 16 months ago.

This firing marks the end of a nine-month disciplinary process.
