Democratic Alliance (DA) KwaZulu-Natal MPL Mbali Ntuli says there seems to be a lacklustre attitude from the province's MECs to implement a sexual offenders list specifically for teachers.
Ntuli made the call in her former position as the spokesperson of education for the DA in KZN.
She says nothing has come of it despite other provinces utilising the necessary mechanisms to identify teachers who have come from other provinces who are on the sexual offenders roll and flagged by the Department of Justice.
We seem to have a very lacklustre buunch of MECs that have sat on education who have not actioned this thing.— Mbali Ntuli, DA KZN MPL
There seems to be some real reluctance getting it actioned in KZN and it is very bad because KZN routinely, year after year, is one of the provinces with the highest number of pupils who are impregnated by educators.— Mbali Ntuli, DA KZN MPL
It seems to be that departments are not talking to each other....there really is such bad administration and such a low level of follow through.— Mbali Ntuli, DA KZN MPL
In KZN, there is a number of cases that we have raised where we still have teachers whose cases are not resolved. Teachers who have been found to have been sexual offenders in other provinces have been able to move here and teach and have been found to have impregnated girls.— Mbali Ntuli, DA KZN MPL
