natu thumb medium80 91eNCA reports that according to the National Teachers’ Union (Natu), the KwaZulu-Natal Basic Education Department is on the brink of collapse.  

The union has levelling a number of allegations of corruption against officials at the department.  Among these, the union has identified the overproduction of sanitary towels, in respect of which the department had budgeted R20-million but has so far spent over R100-million.  Also, the union says the sanitary towels produced do not meet industry standards.  The national Department of Basic Education has apparently agreed to investigate all the allegations the union has flagged.  KwaZulu-Natal officials said they need more time to look into the claims before responding.
