Sadtu denies allegations made by Umalusi head
Sadtu's Mugwena Maluleke says there is no basis for claims that the union is behind the jobs-for-cash scandal.
JOHANNESBURG - South African Democratic Teachers Union (Sadtu) says it believes some of the allegations made against it in a report by Umalusi head John Volmink are unfounded and unfair.
The report has revealed that the union currently controls the education sector in six provinces - implicating it in the jobs-for-cash scandal.
But the union says it can't be blamed for the illicit activities of individual members.
Sadtu says it has handed over the report to its lawyers for further inspection.
The union's Mugwena Maluleke says there is no basis for claims that the body is behind the jobs-for-cash scandal.
"Some of the allegations against the union are unfounded because the union and its individuals are a separate issue."
Last week, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga released a preliminary report which found evidence of teacher posts being sold in various provinces.
Volmink's report has shown that in Gauteng posts are being sold for between R30,000 and R45,000.
