In the event that his appointment as the Acting Director-General is not extended beyond the six months, then Dr Moemi will assume his position as the Head of the Property Management Trading Entity,

(c) Dr Moemi is appointed on contract additional to the establishment for a period of 12 months in accordance with Regulation 57 sub regulation (2) to (6) of the Public Service Regulations 2016.
(d) Dr Moemi is an employee of the Department of Public Works and Infrastructure, appointed on contract additional to the establishment, hence he was considered for appointment as Acting Director-General.
(a) The difference between the salary of Dr Moemi and Adv. Vukela is R155 217.00.
(b) No, Dr. Moemi is appointed in the Department as Head of the PMTE and requested to act due to his extensive experience as a Director-General. It is further due to a need to strengthen the GRC Branch with the return of DDG Imtiaz Fazel to his original post. Lastly, it will be premature to plan on the possible outcome of the disciplinary proceeding of Adv. Vukela because that process is handled by an independent chairperson and the outcome cannot be predetermined.
