Vuwani shutdown disrupts exams

Grade 12 learners in Vuwani missed their Business Economics paper on Wednesday following a total shut down in the area.

Spokesperson for Limpopo department of education, Naledzani Rasila says they are hoping the ongoing negotiations will yield positive results so that learners can return to school.

There is a total shutdown in Vuwani and if other departments cannot operate surely we cannot also operate...

Naledzani Rasila, Spokesperson for Limpopo department of education

Rasila says the department has planned for the development of the learners and did not anticipate the disruptions.

We do not plan for the disruption of the schools, we plan for the development and we were not part of the planning of the protests - we did not know about them.
