Yet no action has been taken against former HR manager Josephine Abdilla, who is believed to still be receiving a full wage despite while suspended – four full years after the inquiry was con- cluded. The ministerial inquiry was launched in 2018 after Abdil- la was placed on forced leave following complaints by her co-workers. A figure reviled by staff and teachers for her abrasive and suborning behaviour, Abdilla alleged corruption and bribery at the heart of MCAST's oper- ations in an angry email to the education ministry. But when the ministry re- sponded with an official inquiry into the serious claims, all alle- gations were disproved. Instead, the tables were turned against her: whistleblowers came for- ward saying they had been pres- sured by Abdilla in selecting fa- voured candidates for MCAST teaching jobs. Yet the inquiry report remains unpublished to this day.
