Union raises concerns over SADTU secretary's qualifications

The academic qualifications of Nomarashiya Caluza, SADTU's provincial secretary in KwaZulu-Natal have been at the centre of a public dispute between two unions.

SALIPSWU says Caluza - who also speaks to the media on behalf of the union - doesn't have a basic teaching qualification.  

Speaking at a press briefing in Durban yesterday, Thobile Ntola says the issue came to light when Caluza, who was meant to enrol for a bursary program at North-West University, produced several affidavits saying her documents had been destroyed in a house fire.  

He says it was later found that she'd never studied at a tertiary institution.

"As she was preparing for this lady to take the baton, she also realised that she does not have a postgraduate degree. For you to lead, you must ensure that you are above those you are leading. How can a person be part of the highest body in a profession which is supposed to be managing ethics of educators?," Ntola said.
