Mpumalanga Department of Education MEC , Mr Bonakele Majuba will on Monday, 23 August 2021 at 11:00am visit Entokozweni Secondary School in Kwaggafontein at Thembisile Hani Local Municipality.
MEC Majuba will use the visit to condemn acts of violence and to call upon learners to behave in keeping to the Code of Good Conduct for Learners of their school.
The MEC’s visit follows a disturbing report that two learners at this school allegedly had a physical altercation on the 4th of August 2021.
It is alleged that one of these learners suffered physical injuries and was taken for medical treatment and subsequently passed away on the 13th of August 2021.
