But now many doubt if they are qualified for the one they just received.

Many celebrities including Mohale Motaung, Penny Lebyane, Khaya Mthethwa, Somizi, and Pearl Modiadie, were hired on the Free Stem Lockdown Digital School, a digital learning platform.

  1. There is a difference between teachers and celebrities. The government must understand that

  2. I really wonder who comes with such crazy ideas… we need teachers and not clowns in front of our kids..
    You must not joke or play with our nation’s future leaders..

    1. This is an insult to the people who went for that qualification and to the department of education. Disgusting.
