Solidarity weighs in on schools reopening

Minister Angie Motshekga

Solidarity has warned Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga to withdraw her directive on independent schools’ reopening or face the consequences.

The union said the minister has no business in determining when independent schools should open or close. The department postponed the reopening of both public and private schools due to rising COVID-19 cases.

Solidarity’s Anton van der Bijl said: “We don’t foresee that she will withdraw that directive.

Unfortunately, we will then have to proceed to the court if the directive is not withdrawn. We will have no other alternative but to court and then we will ask for a court order against the minister in her personal capacity.
