CAPE TOWN - The Commission for Gender Equality is planning on meeting with teacher union, Sadtu to discuss their behaviour at a recent march earlier this month.

In April, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga wrote an open letter to the Commission after Sadtu displayed women's underwear during a march two weeks ago.

In the letter, Motshekga expressed her displeasure at the display of the panties, which the protesting teachers said were hers.

The Commission's spokesperson said the body is empowered to investigate complaints.

Sadtu and Cosatu have meanwhile denied receiving any correspondence from Motshekga, which was published in a local newspaper.

But the teacher's union said the Education minister is trying to deflect attention away from issues in her department.
