It is preparing to challenge the disclosures on legal review, having attacked the document as "lacking credibility".  The final report, due to be released officially on Friday, was leaked to City Press.  The report paints a bleak picture of "jobs for cash" being common practice, with Sadtu holding the basic education system hostage.  The union was scheduled to meet with officials from the Department of Basic Education on Monday night to discuss its inputs on the final report.  This month, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga decided to delay releasing the report to allow teacher unions and other stakeholders implicated in the matter more time to respond.
