No proof of 'jobs for cash' scandal: council

No proof of 'jobs for cash' scandal: council

The South African Council of Educators says it remains available to hear complaints about an alleged teaching jobs for cash scandal in the country.


The council says it has found no evidence of the alleged scandal, despite having heard rumours of such during investigations. 

Teachers' union SADTU has been accused of selling principal and deputy principal positions in some provinces, including KwaZulu-Natal. 

The council asked by SADTU to probe the claims says it found no concrete evidence. 

The council's Rej Brijraj says they welcome any information that can help prove the claims. 

"We're still ready, willing and available to entertain complaints and get evidence, so that we could prosecute cases against educators who may have been acting in a corrupt manner. The council does not condone any form of the violation of the code of ethics," he said. 

Another teachers' union has reportedly slammed the council for not finding any evidence. The Minister of Education received a report from the task team she established to investigate the claims last week.
