Ten Gauteng health department employees have been found to have fraudulent qualifications, it said on Monday.
“Eight officials were dismissed, one given three months without pay and a final warning sanction, and the other is awaiting the appeal process to be concluded,” MEC Qedani Mahlangu said in a statement.
Those involved were three administration clerks, two medical practitioners, two nursing auxiliary officers, two household workers, and one porter.
“Eight of these officials had falsified matric certificates and the other two medical qualifications.”
The verification of qualifications was ongoing.
