‘Ghost’ scandal teachers not likely to be paid

16 January 2013

A GROUP of Nelson Mandela Bay pre-school teachers who were unknowingly involved in the ghost teacher scandal involving a former MEC’s wife are unlikely to see a cent for their work done since the case was unearthed.

The teachers, known as early childhood development (ECD) practitioners, had their contracts terminated at the end of 2010, following the probe by the Hawks that year.

They were last paid in November 2010, a month after then ECD coordinator Pankie Sizani was suspended for her alleged involvement in the creation of 99 ghost posts and pocketing of about R1.3-million in salaries.

Now the women, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said they had exhausted their already limited financial resources trying to get the department to either cough up or re-employ them.
