Minister Motshekga urges Phomolong pupils to resume classes after teacher murdered

Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga is calling on Phomolong Secondary pupils to do their best in the face of tragedy and continue with learning.

Their deputy principal Thembisile Ngendane was gunned down on school premises in Tembisa on Friday.

Police are still searching for her killers.

Motshekga has encouraged pupils at the school to focus on the 2022 curriculum while police look for the killers who murdered their vice principal.

“I want to say to the teachers here that their pain is our pain. And I want to say to the pupils that we love and care for you and you are everything to us. You are the future of this country,” Motshekga said.

The minister has also called on the country to stop speculating about the motive behind Ngendane’s murder.

She visited the school with Gauteng MEC for Education Panyaza Lesufi.

Motshekga is hoping to get more details around the shooting and she’s due to pay her respects to Ngendane’s grieving family later on Tuesday.
