‘No longer safe for teachers’: SADTU on Sea Cow Lake Secondary murder

The South African Democratic Teachers Union (SADTU) in KwaZulu-Natal says the murder of a Sea Cow Lake Secondary teacher confirms the view and its concern that schools are no longer safe for both educators  and learners.

A teacher was murdered at Sea cow Lake Secondary School which is under the Umlazi District.

SADTU WEIGHS IN ON MURDER OF SEA COW LAKE TEACHER 

SADTU said safety in schools remains a problem, hence it is easy for criminals to just get into schools and kill teachers.

According to SADTU, Muzi Zulu, had an afternoon class this week when his murderers charged at him in the classroom in full view of his learners. Teachers and learners were also robbed of their possessions.

“SADTU continues to call on every member of the society to protect teachers, learners, and education workers. Our schools are no longer safe as teachers do not know whether they will be going back to their families everyday they go to school.

“This has serious implications for quality teaching and learning. SADTU understands the trauma currently affecting the staff, learners, and community of Sea Cow Lake Secondary School. We can only appreciate the police for working hard ensuring that they arrest the suspects.”

SADTU said it hopes for a successful prosecution.
