A group of Department of Transport employees turned to President Ramaphosa in a desperate attempt to oust their boss as a crook.

Minister Blade Nzimande is, according to this group, the most corrupt official of them all. They allege that he illegally hires 'his people' at the ministry.

The employees ask that the president investigate the minister, according to a report by TimesLIVE.

However, the minister laughed the letter of as just a ploy of his "detractors" to make him lose focus.

Briefly gathered that copies of the letter was made and sent to Police Minister Bheki Cele as well as Administration Minister Ayanda Dlodlo.

The letter apparently tells of how Nzimande hired staff from the Ministry of Higher Education and Training where he previously served as minister.

These appointed officials are allegedly unskilled and unqualified for their jobs.

This guy is the most corrupt of all. He came with all his ministry staff from his previous deployment as minister of higher education. All the staff have now been appointed on a permanent basis. This is against the Ministerial Handbook and public service regulations.

The letter has not yet reached the president but the aggrieved employees shouldn't get their hopes up. The president's spokesperson, Khusela Diko, stated that the letter hasn't reached him yet, but they should follow the proper channels to deal with their problems.
