saceCity Press reports that the SA Council for Educators (SACE) has defended its four-page report into the selling of teacher promotional posts, which found no evidence of corruption or wrongdoing.  

The SACE came under heavy criticism from the DA’s Gavin Davis on Monday after a copy of the report, Selling of Posts, was released.  Davis said the report was “defective, amateurish and a whitewash” and demanded that the SACE appear before the basic education portfolio committee, which it indicated it was willing to do.  The report dealt with specific claims of corruption at certain schools in four provinces, involving the SA Democratic Teachers’ Union (Sadtu) in particular.  Rej Brijraj of SACE commented:  “We have done our best to investigate as many cases as possible.  Whether we wrote this on one page or 10 pages, it would be the same thing.  We found no evidence forthcoming.”
