Flamingo school employees have valid permits

All seven non-citizens employed at Flamingo Primary School have valid work permits, says Minister of Employment, Labour Productivity and Skills Development, Mr Tshenolo Mabeo.

He said two teachers were on their third contract, three on their second contract and two on their first contract.

Mr Mabeo said one inspection was carried at both Flamingo Primary School and secondary as a joint inspection as both schools were housed within the same premises and managed by one head teacher.

The inspection, he said, was conducted for a duration of three days on February 25, March 9 and 16, 2015, and that a follow up was made on November 30 2017 for verification and confirmation of information.

He explained that the process of conducting a labour inspection involved three phases, which included separate interviews with the employees, including Batswana employees, another meeting with the management (employers) and lastly a tripartite meeting involving employees, management and labour inspectors.

Gabane-Mmankgodi MP, Maj. Gen. Pius Mokgware had asked the minister to state the number of inspections carried out at Flamingo Primary School in Sowa Town in the past three years.

He also requested the minister to state whether all foreign teachers employed at the school have work permits and the number of times each foreign teacher’s contract was renewed. ENDS
