TWO Mpumalanga alleged bogus teachers who were arrested a few days ago, are expected to appear in the Volkrust Regional Court in February  next year.

Sibongile Rose Khuzwayo (48) and Nonjabulo Bahle Mabuza (31) are currently out on R3000 bail each. During their first appearance last week  their case was postponed to give them an opportunity to apply for legal representation.

” They were arrested by the Hawks after it came to light  that they presented fake qualifications in order to be employed at the same secondary school in Volkrust,” said Hawks Mpumalanga spokesperson Captain Deneo Sekgotodi. Both suspects practiced as teachers for eight and two years respectively and earned more than R2.4 million during this time.

According to Sekgotod,i the department became suspicious of the two last year and requested them to submit their qualifications. Instead of submitting the qualifications they opted to resign.The department opened a case with  local police which was later transferred to the Hawks.
