The Department says schools who fail to adhere to measures put in place to protect pupils during the Covid-19 pandemic will be dealt with harshly.
Mshengu says they will be very strict in monitoring that all our schools are cleaned every day.
The MEC adds that if there is somebody who doesn’t perform his or her duty such that the school defaults consequences will be dished out to that person.
