hawksNews24 reports that two teachers in Mpumalanga have been arrested for allegedly landing their jobs by using fake qualifications.  

Sibongile Khuzwayo, 48, and Nonjabulo Mabuza, 31, were arrested on Thursday and appeared in court on Friday, Captain Dineo Sekgotodi of the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (Hawks) indicated on Sunday.  The two had practised as teachers at Seme Secondary School for eight and two years' respectively.  "It is alleged that the Mpumalanga Department of Education suffered a combined loss of more than R2.4m," Sekgotodi pointed out.  The department apparently became suspicious about their qualifications in 2017 and asked them to resubmit their qualifications.  Sekgotodi explained:  "The pair allegedly opted to resign.  The department opened a case with the local police which was later transferred to the Hawks for further investigations and later arrested Khuzwayo and Mabuza for fraud."
