23 Mar 2023 in Press Statements

Today, Thursday, 23 March 2023, the Democratic Alliance Shadow MEC for Education, Khume Ramulifho MPL, will conduct an oversight inspection at Sizuzile Primary School in Tsakane, Ekurhuleni.

The DA has been reliably informed that the school has been shut down nearly a month ago. The two grade R classrooms were burnt down to ashes. It is alleged that angry parents have been protesting outside the school preventing teaching and learning from taking place. Learners have lost much of their valuable schooling time because of the ongoing protest.

Members of the media are invited and there will be an opportunity for interviews and photographs.

The details of the oversight inspection are as follows:

Date: Thursday 23 March 2023

Time: 10:00 am

Venue: Sizuzile Primary School

Address: 31450 9th Avenue, Tsakane, Ekurhuleni.
