The commission for gender equality convened
a follow up, supplementary employment equity hearing with two municipalities
which had failed to appear before the Commission on the 31st of October 2012 in Mpumalanga.
Javu Baloyi from the commission for gender
equality said the commission was
compelled to subpoena the municipal managers of the Mbombela and Msukaligwa
local municipalities to appear before it and account for the slow pace of
Baloyi said unfortunately the contravening of
the subpoena and the commission is taking the matter to the equality court,
whereby also the criminal charges will be laid against the municipal manger of
the Msukaligwa municipality.
Baloyi adds that they are a bit uncertain
with the progress made by Mmobela and the commission will now endeavour to
ensure that gender transformation will take place.
