One South Africa leader Mmusi Maimane says he’s able to meet the essential Department of Education in court again regarding the reopening of faculties .
The pressure continues to mount on the department to pack up SA schools amid ever-increasing Covid-19 infections.
Mmusi, who has long opposed the reopening of classrooms, says that he’s prepared before his legal battle over the difficulty .
“The President has asked the state to face the storm, to prevent drinking, to prevent smoking, to remain inside in the dark . He has asked schools remain open. Even students face the storm. That’s all fine, but why are parliamentarians not being asked to face an equivalent storm.”
“To continue down this path is to repeat an equivalent action and expect different results. Let’s close the faculties until after the height . Let’s use that point to repair the decaying school infrastructure and let’s redesign the curriculum,” he said.
Maimane insisted that the wise move is to err on the side of caution rather than enduring more positive cases within the classroom.
