The IFP education forum today expressed shock
at the arrest of the education district manager for Ugu, Mfundo
Sibiya and two other senior principles for the alleged
involvement in the murder of SADTU leader Nkosinathi Zondi.
"The IFP has always maintained that unionism
and party politics have no place in the education system and
positions should be given to those who qualify for them. This
alleged involvement of union leaders and top education officials
in this crime is both disgusting and shocking" said IFP
chairperson of the Education Forum.
Mr. Lindani Mkhize, the principal of Gobhela
primary school and Mr Mhlengi Luthuli the principal of
Bonguzwane high school, also both SADTU leaders, were arrested
alongside Mr. Sibiya.
The IFP applauds the arrest of these
individuals and hopes that the law will be allowed to take its
course in this matter as no one should be above the law.
