The Democratic Alliance has criticised what it calls an attempt by the teachers’ trade union SADTU to rubbish the ‘Jobs for Cash’ report before it has been publicly released.

“SADTU is playing political games because it knows that the ‘Jobs for Cash’ report will expose the damage that SADTU is doing to our education system‚” DA spokesman on basic education Gavin Davis asserted.

He charged that the “Jobs for Cash’ report would “show how SADTU-aligned officials are taking bribes in return for allocating teaching posts”.

“It will also show how six out of nine provincial education departments have been captured by SADTU‚” Davis stated.

“We call on Minister Motshekga to stand firm in the face of SADTU intimidation‚ and to release the ‘Jobs for Cash’ report within the timeframe she committed to on Thursday.

“The time has come to break SADTU’s stranglehold on our education system. This is the only way we are going to ensure that learners from disadvantaged backgrounds are given the opportunities they need to emerge from poverty‚” Davis added.
