Sadtu wants Minister to end probe into 'goats for jobs' scam
The union has been accused of selling posts in exchange for cash, cows and goats.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African Democratic Teachers Union (Sadtu) has called on Education Minister Angie Motshekga to conclude her investigation into allegations that its members have been soliciting bribes in exchange for principal posts in various provinces.
The union which has been accused of selling posts in exchange for cash, cows and goats, said it believes it will be cleared of any wrongdoing.
Sadtu's KwaZulu-Natal branch has dismissed allegations that its officials are compromising education in the country for their own gain.
The allegations first surfaced last April when the City Press exposed the alleged 'goats for jobs' scam, prompting the launching of a commission of inquiry, appointed by the Motshekga.
The union's Nomarashiya Caluza said they're waiting for the release of the report as the allegations are of serious nature.
"These are serious allegations. We're waiting for that report."
Caluza has encouraged union members who have information that may help clear them of wrongdoing, to come forward.
"And we're calling for every member of Sadtu who has information to present himself or herself to the commission."
