Pietermaritzurg - A dispute in which a local teacher asked the high court to find a former MEC for Education in KZN guilty of contempt of court has been set down for trial in March next year.

The application by Woodlands Secondary School teacher Logan David arises from a case which David launched against former KZN Education MEC Senzo ­Mchunu in 2013. According to court papers the MEC was ordered to make certain documents available to David, and give written reasons for failing to respond to David’s request for information.

The information related to the advertised post of principal of Woodlands Secondary School, and the process that was followed to appoint the present principal, Rashida Golab-Hajee.

David had applied for the post but was unsuccessful.

The teacher alleges the MEC failed to comply with the order to give him the information he requires, and he wants the court to impose an “appropriate” penalty on the MEC for contempt of court.

The case came before Pietermaritzburg high court Judge Isaac Madondo on Tuesday who adjourned the case to the opposed roll for hearing on March 17 next year.
