CAPE TOWN - The South African Democratic Teachers Union (Sadtu) has reiterated its members will not be taking part in this year's Annual National Assessment (ANA) exams.

Sadtu has accused Basic Education Minister Angie Motsekga of disrespecting the union after she announced on Friday that the assessments will go ahead at the end of the year.

The union says it's not satisfied with the standard of the exams.

Spokesperson Nomusa Cembi said, "The decision they took shows utter disrespect for the union. We are stakeholders in education."

Motshekga says the decision to proceed is in line with an agreement she reached with unions.
