Schools torched in South Africa

If school children or students torched school building or universities, let them study under the tree or they must build it up by themselves with their own money or their parents.   They must use their own labour and pay them to do that.  Where were the parents when they did this?  Nobody gave them orders to do arson – it is a criminal act.   Arson – the criminal act of deliberately setting fire to property, also school or municipal buldings, vehicles, trucks and even farm buildings.   To enjoy a fire with a burning tyre on any road is arson – you as a child or terrorist did not build that street or road.    It is also pollution to all of us and the environment. Who will pay the damages to schools and universities as well as furniture and equipment, books, etc ?  Insurances?  15% VAT again to government and who will get the B-BBEE tenders?

2012 – now who must build this again – taxpayers?


More than 400 schools have been burnt down / part of  during night time and it is a lock down as well.

Nearly 400 schools vandalised and torched in three weeks.

Learning and teaching equipment and other expensive items have been stolen from schools across the country during the lockdown period.

The Department of Basic Education (DBE) is extremely concerned that 397 schools have been vandalised across the country since the lockdown started a mere three weeks ago.   The damage caused due to torching and theft in schools will have a negative impact on the implementation of the recovery plan once the lockdown is lifted.

These are the number of schools that were vandalised in each province during the lockdown: 

  • Mpumalanga – 73; 
  • Gauteng – 67;
  • Western Cape – 57; 
  • North West – 55; 
  • Northern Cape – 39 schools; 
  • KwaZulu-Natal – 34; 
  • Limpopo – 30; 
  • Eastern Cape – 26; and 
  • Free State – 16. 

Motshekga has condemned the incidents of vandalism, burglary and destruction of schools across the country. The minister has welcomed the arrests of 44 suspects thus far in Gauteng, including those found in possession of stolen property linked to school break-ins in the province. Two arrests were made in the last 24 hours in KZN.

“It is really unfortunate that criminals in our communities could destroy the infrastructure of their own children. We applaud the work done by the police and we hope that more arrests will be made. We want to see the arrest and prosecution of every single criminal responsible for this kind of behaviour,” she said.

Motshekga said communities were supposed to be caretakers of the infrastructure put in place by the government for the education of children.    “These criminals must be reported to the police immediately. Let us work together to safeguard the future of our children by exposing these criminal elements,” she added.

The Soshanguve High School Governing Body has attributed what’s happening to a lack of security.
