THE South African Municipal Workers Union in the Greater Letaba Municipality in Modjadjiskloof have threatened to make the municipality "ungovernable" until a fired employee is reinstated.

Local Samwu secretary Refilwe Makhananisa said the union called for the resignation of municipal manager Isaiah Mutshinyali and the reinstatement of Samwu member Joseph Leseilane.

Leseilane was a human resources clerk and was fired by Mutshinyali last year after he was found "guilty of misconduct".

Leseilane then took the matter to the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration where the commission recently ruled in his favour , but he has still not been reinstated.

Greater Letaba mayor City Mojadji said he was concerned that possibble union action could cause a "financial crisis".
