The suspension of KwaZulu-Natal correctional services regional commissioner Mnikelwa Nxele has been lifted.
“I can confirm that my suspension has been lifted and I am happy for that,” he said on Monday afternoon.
Nxele, based in Pietermaritzburg, was suspended on July 8 and his position was filled by the acting regional commissioner, Zachariah Modise, on July 11.
Nxele was suspended for misconduct. The details of the allegations against him were not made public.
“The national commissioner (Tom Moyane) convened a meeting for all the managers at Westville Prison today (Monday) where he announced that my suspension was lifted,” said Nxele.
He said he was neither bitter nor held a grudge against Moyane.
“I don’t hold grudges against anyone for my suspension. I am just happy that I have been given the opportunity to continue serving our people,” he said.
Nxele said the matter was resolved amicably.
“I will not look back. There is a lot of work that needs to be done. We need to continue with our programmes.”
Moyane was not immediately available for comment. – Sapa
