Corruption in education continues

26 May 2016, 07:21  - Joyce.Jagaroo

CONGRATULATIONS on your excellent editorial expressing concern about the need to clean up education (The Witness, May 23).

A sense of justice prevailed when Minister Angie Motshekga appointed the Volmink Commission to look into the serious allegations of “jobs for cash”. Sadtu demanded to make its input and stalled the release of the Volmink Report. Many maintain Sadtu wanted to sanitise the report. It has now emerged that Motshekga’s mandate was feeble and the available findings are inadequate as the terms of reference were very vague. Was Motshekga merely completing a tick-box exercise, hoping it would put paid to the disgrace?

Rightly, teacher union Natu is calling for a judicial commission of inquiry into the “jobs for cash” rot, citing that Motshekga was soft on Sadtu.

Sadtu controls education while the ANC is dependent on its members’ votes.

From appointments in our schools to education departments, local government and right up to Parliament, Sadtu meddles.

It is a known fact the Sadtu loyalists’ only concerns are selfish; one just has to look at some of our schools, our district, the region and no further.

I have been challenged by the loyalists and the honourable in Sadtu for years for my firm stand on corruption in education. I feel vindicated.

However, given the whitewash outcome of the Sereti Commission of Inquiry into the arms deal, will the corrupt in education ever be uncovered, or will it be concealed by the ANC too?
