The principal Jubere Silowa and teacher, Offori Yeboah, were fingered by the department, along with two district officials and two general assistants engaged at the school, whose engagement dates were backdated and made to deposit the excess money into the teacher’s bank account. The teacher is said to be out on bail, granted by the Johannesburg Specialised Commercial Crimes Court after being charged for the alleged bribery of an investigating officer. Two district officials were also said to be involved.
