saceCity Press reports that the SA Council of Educators (Sace) has charged a provincial leader of the SA Democratic Teachers’ Union (Sadtu) with 13 counts of misconduct over her alleged role in the sale of a teaching post to a Durban educator.  

He later blew the whistle on the accused, Thembekile Makhanya, who is the coordinator for sports and recreation on Sadtu’s KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) provincial executive and a council member of the Coastal KZN TVET College.  Last year, teacher Nkonzo Mqadi claimed he had paid Makhanya, then a head of department at the Sophie Pewa Primary School at Folweni, R1,000 a month for 12 months after she had requested payment in return for facilitating his transfer from another school.  Makhanya has been suspended by Sadtu, but not yet by the education department.
