RSSC suspends 6 employees
MBABANE: The Royal Swaziland Sugar Corporation (RSSC) has suspended six employees in the wake of the Lucky Sifundza saga.
This was confirmed last night by the RSSC Managing Director Nick Jackson, who said the decision was reached last night after carefully considering a number of factors and an investigation carried out by the company’s disciplinary team.
The six have been suspended with full pay and have been suspended following the mysterious circumstances that surround the death of their colleague, Sifundza, who disappeared on May 23.
However, DNA results have since confirmed that he was killed in the mill.
"I think we are getting closer and closer to establishing the truth," said Jackson.
He added that the decision was taken by the disciplinary team which has been investigating Sifundza’s disappearance and death and consists of members from the factory, engineering and workers union.
The company believes there is sufficient evidence to suggest foul play on the day of Sifundza’s disappearance, hence the workers who have been suspended are workers who ‘were around Sifundza on the fateful day’.
"This decision has been taken to help the company get answers as to what happened that led to the death of our employee," he stated.
