Johannesburg - Despite perceived to be doing sterling work in some quarters, a board member of the FW de Klerk Foundation has, through an open letter, cast doubt on Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi’s work.
Last month Lesufi was moved back to the education department by Gauteng Premier David Makhura because some members of the public felt that he was doing a sterling job before he was moved to the finance department.
In the article posted on the foundation’s website late on Monday, Theuns Eloff, who chairs the advisory board, said Lesufi frequently crosses the line as political head of the department and plays chief executive officer “and then makes pronouncements about anything and everything.”
Continuing his tirade, Eloff alleged that Lesufi also often shoots from the hip.
“Should Mr Lesufi get a pass for this? Judge for yourself... Granted, his media profile is sky-high and he looks and sounds like he 'does something' … but the facts prove the opposite.
