Allegations of Jobs for Cash

Gina N

The ANC notes with sadness the continuous allegations of the selling of the teaching posts. A news report by the City Press newspapers alleges that some SADTU leaders, particularly in KwaZulu-Natal, are selling jobs. This is bad and should not be tolerated. We condemn the selling of posts as it compromises the integrity of the education system and the professional stature of teaching.

The newspaper report signals that some teachers might still have information on the selling of posts and we call on any individuals, government officials, teachers, teacher unions and SGB associations who still have information on the selling of posts to swiftly approach the investigation team.

As the ANC we need urgent conclusion of this matter and we need to demonstrate that teaching jobs are not for sale and those doing so should face the might of the law.

I thank you
