Mrs Sizani would allegedly obtain the personal details of teachers, apply for posts on their behalf and falsify the principal's signature of approval. Once the money was paid by the department into the teachers' accounts, Mrs Sizani would allegedly inform them that a mistake had been made and that the money should be paid back to her. Sizani has been charged with 16 counts of fraud and money laundering.
