quite messy and ugly,I haven't been following the story, but it sounds messy:
And:Conflict of interest could have led to the breakdown of relations between the church and the board chairperson of the embattled Bishop Bavin School.www.news24.com
A group of 102 staff and teachers at Bishop Bavin private school in Johannesburg, who were dismissed when the school suddenly announced its closure earlier this month, are taking the school to the Labour Court on Tuesday.www.news24.com
I'm intrigued by cases like this. In law the teachers are obviously 100% correct, but if the school has no money to pay them how must it do so?The Johannesburg Labour Court has ruled that staff and teachers of Bishop Bavin private school in Johannesburg are still employed by the school.www.news24.com
now the slush fund needs to pay out,
they could start auctioning off some of the moveable assets, like cars, tractors ect...There is already R30m debt. I doubt the school has any significant assets (could be wrong) so any payout to teachers will be minimal.
Intriguing.However, Reverend Xolani Dlwati, the spokesperson for the church, hit back saying that there were issues with the deal relating to conflict of interest and the R30 million loan guarantee, which could have required the church to put up its land and school property as security.
Dlwati said the church had a number concerns about the school, including the direction which the institution was taking and the manner of input that was being made.
“Even in the conduct as well ... there seems to be a view that things were moving in a different direction than the one we thought they were moving in.
“One of the key things is that those members of the board were part of all the negotiations.
“There was continual insistence and pressure for the church to sign those deals, to such a point that you felt like ubanjwe ngentamo [you were being grabbed by the neck to] sign or else…
“There were concerns in relation to the direction and the operations and whether or not we were getting as much information as we could,” Dlwati said.
Without divulging the entities which made proposals, Dlwati said there were relationship issues with the board members – including Grobler – which led to a request for them to resign owing to a conflict of interest when the third entity tabled its proposal.I’m fascinated that it is board members who claim that we refused to sign the deal. Of course there was no way that we could put the church at further risk.
Reverend Xolani Dlwati
He said it transpired that the chief negotiator of a deal tabled by the first entity was also involved in the third entity.
This was after possible deals with the first and second entities fell through.
There's no way the school blew over R30m in 1 month. This has been going on for a while. If I was to don tinfoil hat for a second, I'd say the board chairman may shed some light in future. I feel he knows something.indeed,
but again, whats the REAL story here, cant be all due to covid and its after effects, must be more going on here,
Charlize net worth was 110 million dollars many moons ago. Do you think she couldn't save her own school if she wanted to?she aint no Charlize Theron though,
definitely not earning the same as Charlize, as even she cant even afford to save her own school where she graduated.
maybe they brought 30 million Rand's worth of ChappiesThere's no way the school blew over R30m in 1 month. This has been going on for a while. If I was to don tinfoil hat for a second, I'd say the board chairman may shed some light in future. I feel he knows something.
maybe, but nobody has come up with the cash, and clearly some people lose that sort of cash down the back of the sofa,Charlize net worth was 110 million dollars many moons ago. Do you think she couldn't save her own school if she wanted to?
I suspect the answer will be I brought a small country in the south pacific, where I can be lord of all I survey.I feel he knows something.
