A local teacher is accusing Peace Mokiti, the secretary of the Soweto North branch of the SA Democratic Teachers’ Union (Sadtu) of demanding sex from her in exchange for a principal’s post.

Another teacher is also accusing him of demanding a “deposit” bribe to help him land the job of deputy principal at a primary school in the township.

Mokiti, the 53-year-old principal of Margaret Gwele Primary School in Dobsonville, Soweto, has been at the centre of several emails and calls that City Press has received from teachers in Soweto. They follow our investigation into a jobs-for-cash racket that is being run by Sadtu members. The stories were first published a month ago.

When Mokiti was approached for a comment on Friday, he initially invited City Press to a one-on-one interview in his school office.

But, a short while later, he called to cancel the interview and threatened to assault the reporter.

“If you ever publish my name, I will beat you up very badly and cause too much trouble for you,” he said. When he was contacted again, he refused to comment and said: “I am consulting my lawyers.”
