UNITED DEMOCRATIC MOVEMENT

MEDIA RELEASE


SITOLE OFFERS TO RESIGN. FIRE HIM.

MEDIA STATEMENT ISSUED BY
 GERHARD KOORNHOF, MP UDM SPOKESPERSON FINANCE

Dr. Sitole, DG of Correctional Services, has offered to step down in January 2000, provided favourable conditions can be arranged for him.

This reveals something of his remarkable worldview. It also reveals to what extent respect for honesty and service to the public have already been eroded in the public sector.

The UDM wants to reiterate its position: Dr. Sitole should be released of his responsibilities with immediate effect. That might at least be a start in restoring public confidence in clean government under President Mbeki. 
Dr. Sitole himself should have taken a cue from the French minister of Finance: He should have resigned already.
