WARNING: MUNICIPAL JOBS NOT FOR SALE
The Greater Tzaneen Municipality advertised over 20 jobs last week and already several applicants have been robbed of their hard earned money by individuals who promised them municipal jobs in exchange for cash.
The municipality has issued warnings on previous occasions, however our people continue to fall victim to this scam.
The municipality or any of its official will never ask for money in exchange for a job/s. The recruitment process of the municipality is regulated and there are various stakeholders involved.
No single individual can make an appointment singlehanded.
Human resources and departments sit in interview panels and recommend to the municipal manager on positions lower than that of directors. Labour Unions observe the process for fairness and legality.
You must be cautious of those who approach you with these impossible promises. You must also remember that paying someone for a job is criminal offence.
Those who pay in exchange for favour are as corrupt as those who take the money to dish out favours. Our government has taken a hard-line approach to corruption.
Please alert the police if anyone offers you a municipal job for cash or any favour.
There are also a contact numbers on all the adverts for further information.
Please spread the message to as many people as possible before they too become victims.

The municipality has since secured the services of four testing officers. The officers of which two are from the municipality and the other two from the department of transport were sent to a refresher course which they all successfully completed.
