DURBAN - Tomorrow KwaZulu-Natal Education MEC Kwazi Mshengu is expected to address the media on the recruitment of educators.

In a brief statement on Thursday, the department said Mshengu would address the issue of budget cuts during the current financial year which has impacted its teacher recruitment efforts.
