Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi warned residents of Katlehong on the East Rand that his department will not fix vandalised schools.
On Thursday Lesufi posted pictures of what is left at Katlegong Primary school. This follows a community protest over a lack of electricity.
Lesufi has described the incident as ‘completely unacceptable’.
In response to a comment that the tweet was not an official response, Lesufi said, “we’ve done that before.
“They destroyed the school and we told them we will not repair the school.
“Parents and learners repaired the school. So, our standpoint is not a stunt. We mean it.”
Lesufi said pupils who attend Katlehong Primary will be accommodated at nearby schools.
