The Democratic Alliance has
welcomed the investigation by the Special Investigating Unit into the Eastern
Cape department of education.
The investigation will look at
serious maladministration, unlawful appropriation of public money or property
and intentional or negligent loss of public money or damage to public property,
within the department.
DA MP of Basic Education
Annette Lovemore said the list of problems are extensive and is a reflection of
a deep systemic failure in the department of education in the province.
Lovemore said we have long
been calling on President Zuma to show support for minister Motshekga and of
the children of the Eastern Cape by getting involved and ensuring that the
department is working well.
”We welcome now the Presidents
eventual finding an authority for an investigation into the department in the
Eastern Cape to go ahead to ensure that all corrupt officials or municipal
administrators corruption is uncovered and make sure all those that are guilty
of maladministration are brought to book” Lovemore added.
