BARELY five months into his new job, Nelson Mandela Bay’s new head of trade and investment, Lutho Nduvane, is facing possible disciplinary action for allegedly swearing at his boss, Anele Qaba.
Nduvane, who is on leave, was served with a letter of intention to suspend him this week for alleged gross insubordination and verbal abuse.
He has to give reasons to city manager Mpilo Mbambisa why he should not be suspended as the alleged incident led to a broken relationship between him and his employer.
The move comes after he allegedly said “f**k you small boy” to Qaba when Qaba recused Nduvane and another colleague from a meeting with Mbambisa on Friday.
The meeting was to discuss a trip to China which officials were supposed to embark on this week. It has since been cancelled.
