The IFP commends Kwa-Zulu Natal regional
commissioner, Mnikelwa Nxele for suspending Ebongweni C-Max
Prison area commissioner, James Patrick Baxter for alleged
nepotism after he employed his daughter.
IFP spokesperson on Correctional Services, Mr
Velaphi Ndlovu MP said, “Nepotism is unacceptable, especially in
government departments and Nxele was right to suspend Baxter. No
one should get any preferential treatment on being employed
anywhere including in correctional services.”
The IFP urges the regional commissioner to do
further investigation this matter to find out who else was
involved in this practice of nepotism. All those involved should
be removed from correctional services.
“Nepotism should be taken seriously as it is
unfair to many other job applicants. It is the type of
corruption that needs to be rooted out in the public services,”
IFP Spokesperson on Correctional
Services, Mr Velaphi Ndlovu MP, 083
