It has been a busy day for Gauteng MEC for Education Panyaza Lesufi.
The MEC has been to Pretoria West, Soshanguve and then Alex to cater for the urgent needs during the lockdown.
Whilst in Pretoria West where tents were supplied to cater the homeless people during the lockdown, Lesufi slammed private schools for not helping to accommodate homeless people.
“It’s a shame that we’ve to place fellow South Africans in tents while public assets like boarding schools are standing empty because self-centered SGBs are refusing to open up schools to accommodate our people. Is it because homeless people are half-human beings?,” Lesufi said
Lesufi supplied food hampers in Mabopane, and the same in Alex with sanitizers following a reported COVID-19 case in the area.
