The Democratic Alliance (DA) has accused the South African Democratic Teachers Union (Sadtu) of threatening Minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga to not release the ‘Jobs for Cash’ report.
Motshekga on Friday, the day scheduled for the release of the report, postponed the release of the report saying the postponement was needed to allow stakeholders to make their inputs into the report.
In a statement released by the DA, the party said the union is once again dictating when the report should be released.
“Yesterday, SADTU issued a threatening statement urging Minister Motshekga not to follow through with the release of the report. Today, Minister Motshekga meekly complied with SADTU’s wishes,” said the DA.
The Party also expressed their disappointed and anger, saying Sadtu has captured the Education department.
“Minister Motshekga’s latest failure to release the report is an admission of her own powerlessness. It is clearly SADTU, not Minister Motshekga, who calls the shots in our education system,” the Party said.
The Minister has postponed the release date by two weeks.
