DA’s manner of address odious – SADTU

The South African Democratic Teachers Union (SADTU) has been angered by the Democratic Alliance’s “odious tone” of address.

SADTU said it disapproves the manner in which the DA press releases are consistently racist, patronising and condescending in tone.

“We particularly dislike the way the DA uses the word “must” when they are addressing largely Black organisations. The days are gone when whites could tell any Black person what to do in that tone of voice, and be obeyed. We find this way of talking odious, whether it is done by Mr Davis or any other DA member,” said SADTU.

“There is no “must” for the DA. We are not in a “Cape Colony” any more,” added SADTU.

SADTU’s anger comes after the DA on Saturday, following the release of the ‘Jobs for cash’ report said they “want” SADTU to face the music.

SADTU said it wishes to remind the public and media that they were not found guilty or responsible for the selling of post.

On Friday Midnight, Minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga released the controversial ‘Jobs for cash’ report.

The Department released the report, saying 38 cases have grounds for further investigations for possible criminal charges.
