Durban - The salaries of 388 KwaZulu-Natal education department staff are going to be frozen because they cannot be found, the department said on Thursday.

It said this followed a 2009 provincial cabinet decision to “engage in a head count and employee verification exercise”.

The department had been expected to complete the exercise three years ago in 2011, “but because of the magnitude of the department with approximately 108 000, this project extended beyond its time frame”.

This did not necessarily mean the remaining 388 were ghost employees.

“We are going to wait and see what happens after we have frozen their salaries, because there could be various reasons why they did not turn up for verification,” department head Nkosinathi Sishi said.
