Crooked Sadtu officials are selling not only principal posts, but are manipulating the education system across provinces to control teachers’ appointments, retirement packages and transfers in return for bribes of as little as R6?500.

Last week City Press exposed the corruption practised by senior Sadtu members who place principals in posts in return for bribes of at least R30?000 for each post.

On Friday night, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga asked President Jacob Zuma to institute a judicial commission of inquiry into Sadtu’s alleged criminal business.

Motshekga wants an inquiry with the power and money to place witnesses in protection programmes and to institute criminal charges against those involved.

The City Press investigation was sparked by the arrest last month of former Sadtu provincial secretary Mfundi Sibiya and a group of Sadtu principals for the murder of whistle-blower and KwaZulu-Natal south coast school principal, Nkosinathi Zondi.

However, this racket is only the tip of Sadtu’s alleged racket.
