A teacher from Limpopo is being investigated for fraud and corruption after he allegedly confessed to forging signatures to withdraw money from a school account.

The Nthetsheleseni Secondary School teacher at Tshivhulani village outside Thohoyandou is alleged to have withdrawn more than R100000 from the school's account.

He allegedly confessed to the charges at the education department's office in Thohoyandou.

The teacher apparently told the department's finance committee that he had forged the signature of the school's treasurer to withdraw the money.

Sources at the school said the teacher had offered to repay the money in instalments of R2000 a month.

"We received a report last week and management said we should report the matter to the department," said a source who did not want his name published.

The case also had to be reported to the police because it involved fraud.

Another source said the teacher had threatened to "stop working if people continued to talk about the fraud".

Ndo Mangala of the department of education would not say if the teacher would be suspended or not.
