We advised branch to go to FSRA – SNAT Sec Gen
While declining to confirm the allegations said to be shaking the teacher’s Savings and Credit Cooperative Society, the Swaziland National Association of Teachers’ Secretary General Zwelithini Mndzebele confirmed that the branch approached the National Executive Committee for assistance.
He said he was not aware of the details pertaining to the complaints by teachers. He referred detailed questions to the Co-op executive.
“They did come to use and we gave them the best advice ever. They came to us as a branch and we referred them where they could get help because when our members pay at co-ops with the notion that they are going to get a service, if the institution no longer gives the service, for informal money collections, there is FSRA and we said they should take their matter there,” he said, adding that they are not privy to the finer details of the allegations.
“We are not operating that institution on a day-to-day basis. Whatever happens there, management knows, not us. So, we told them to go to FSRA to request investigations into what they suspect,” he said.
