City suspends Kahimise again

06 November 2018 | Local News



City of Windhoek CEO Robert Kahimise was suspended for a second time, with immediate effect, late on Monday night.
His suspension is linked to accusations of serious misconduct and the contravention of the City’s conditions of service, as well as contravening its industrial relations policy.
Kahimise’s lawyer Patrick Kauta confirmed the suspension today, saying his client was “suspended without reasons and benefits at 19:15 last night”.
Kauta said he will be applying for an urgent interdict at the Windhoek High Court today.
Sources at the municipality said an urgent management meeting will be take place today at 13:00, followed by a special council meeting later this afternoon.
An acting CEO will be nominated at this meeting, they said.
In a letter sent to the municipality on Friday, Kauta noted that a letter dated 2 November, sent to Kahimise by the council, notified him of the City’s intention to suspend him for a second time.
It also requested that Kahimise make representations to say why he should not be suspended.
However, Kauta said it was too short a notice period for his client to do so.
