JOHANNESBURG - South African Democratic Teachers Union (Sadtu) says Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga should hang her head in shame for postponing the release of the report into the so-called jobs-for-cash scandal, which has now been leaked.

The _City Press _at the weekend claimed to be in possession of the report, which allegedly quotes Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi admitting that Sadtu has power over his office.

Spokesperson Nomusa Cembi says, "We are calling upon the minister to explain how and who leaked this report, we feel that the minister must hang her head in shame for misleading, not only Sadtu, but all the other unions in the education sector for delaying to release the report."
