In an interview with The Chronicle yesterday, Primary and Secondary Education Permanent Secretary Mrs Tumisang Thabela dismissed as fake a document showing a shortlist of recruited primary school teachers submitted to the Public Service Commission (PSC).
According to the document, the Primary and Secondary Education Ministry shortlisted 1 576 teachers for recruitment. Thabela said her ministry does not communicate via social media. She also said recruitment is ongoing. Said Thabela:
It’s fake. We don’t communicate through social media. As you have seen my signature is not appended there. I haven’t submitted any list anywhere. There are issues that have to be looked into but we are in the pipeline, am yet to get a briefing on how far the process has gone.
