DURBAN - The KwaZulu-Natal Basic Education Department is on the brink of collapse. 

Teachers union Natu is levelling a number of allegations of corruption against officials at the department.

It says there’s something dodgy about the overproduction of sanitary towels.

According to the union, the department had budgeted R20-million but has so far spent over R100-million.

It says the sanitary towels produced don’t meet industry standards.

The union says the national Department of Basic Education has agreed to investigate all the allegations its flagged.

KwaZulu-Natal officials said they need more time to look into the claims before responding.
