Dept says it hopes that drastic action will be taken against individuals responsible (July 9)

The Limpopo Department of Education disturbed by ‘leaked' reports to the media

9 Jul 2012

The Limpopo Department of Education is once again appalled by several articles in the weekend and weekly newspapers quoting ‘leaked' reports from credible Investigating Agencies i.e. Gobodo Forensic, Deloitte & Touche and Special Investigating Unit (see report).

The department holds these agencies in high esteem and that these agencies would not compromise their integrity in the society by ‘leaking' confidential reports to the media. We believe that, if it is true that these reports have been leaked from their side, they will take drastic steps against individuals who continue to tarnish their credibility.

We appreciate the conduct of these agencies in the other four departments under administration, where they are doing work and their reports are not leaked to the media.

As the department, we would like to put it on record that, we have not received any official reports from either one of the agencies which are doing work in the department. The department commits itself that at the point when they receive the official reports, it will act according to their recommendations without failure.

Working together we can do more in providing quality education.

As S1(d) of the Constitution says South Africa is one sovereign democratic state
founded on the value of transparency can you not see that it is a nonsense to speak of 'leaks'?

The public have the right to see that information out there in the public domain!

It belongs to us!

"Dept says it hopes that drastic action will be taken against individuals responsible "
One would hope that the drastic action would be taken against the nincompoops responsible for the tragedy, rather than those who report on it. This is the disease which is killing our country. "Deployment" of utterly useless cadres, and the complete lack . .more

Limpopo disgrace
Why must the principals and teachers be silenced? So that no-one knows of the disgraceful situation which still exists?
It would appear that those in power (who should all be sitting behind bars) have less education than the poor children who they . .more
