Zandile Mbabela

A NELSON Mandela Bay teacher yesterday saw her luck desert her when she fell back in the unemployment line just months after resigning from a permanent, well-paying job at a private school to return to an old post as a temporary teacher at Triomf Primary School.

Soon after quitting her job at St Mark’s Primary School in Framesby to rejoin Triomf, Jesintha Coltman is now without work after she was told last week the school could no longer afford to keep its temporary teachers.

Coltman is one of seven temporary teachers at Triomf who were told last week not to return to class because the school coffers had run dry.
