The Democratic Alliance said the findings into the South African Democratic Teacher’s Union jobs-for-cash scandal is extremely serious.
The investigation instituted by the Minister of Basic education Angie Motshekga found among other things that a candidate for a principal post in Gauteng was contacted by Sadtu officials who tried to extort R25 000 in return for the post.
DA MP of Basic Education Annette Lovemore said the Democratic Alliance therefore calls on Minister Motshekga to make her investigation public to table her plan in parliament and to lay criminal charges against every Sadtu member who is part of the scandal.
Meanwhile the Congress of the People has condemned the action by Sadtu leaders who sold promotion posts for their own gain.
In a statement Cope called for decisive action from government to rid education of all rotten apples so that the profession can regain its lost credibility.
Cope Spokesperson Dennis Bloem said it is not in the best interest of the country and of the people that Sadtu must do that. We as Cope said that it is not right for the union to be linked to government.
Bloem added that “we are calling upon the minister to hand over the file to the Hawks so that everybody that is involved in the selling of post arrested must be arrested immediately.”
