Assets seizure application to pay teacher salaries
An application for the seizure of the assets of the Eastern Cape Education Department has been made by the Legal Resources Centre, which wants the proceeds to be used to pay teachers. It has asked that the assets used by Education MEC Mandla Makupula and his head of department, Mthunywa Ngonzo, be attached, notes a report in The Times. As Makupula and Ngonzo yesterday faced this new crisis, the department’s woes worsened with another 13 teachers launching urgent applications for court orders against it, says the report. Sarah Sephton, the centre’s Grahamstown director, confirmed 18 teachers had resorted to issuing a writ of execution, and 13 others were going to court to get their salaries. In June, the centre won a court order that the department pay the outstanding salaries of about 108 teachers. The department paid many of them but 18 have yet to get their pay. They are owed about R619 000, Sephton is quoted as saying. The writ directs the sheriff to attach the department’s assets, including those used by Makupula and Ngonzo. It also directs the sheriff to sell off the goods by public auction to raise the R619 000 owed.
