The South African Democratic Teachers’ Union has noted with concern, cries about the portrayal of Minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga during our march to Pretoria on Wednesday.

SADTU is a non-sexist organisation that seeks to promote equity and equality. We therefore cannot condone such an act. Posters and pamphlets sanctioned by SADTU all had the union’s logo. Our march was in defence of collective bargaining collective and the promotion of quality public education.  As we condemn this act, we would urge government not to shift its focus from the real issues.
