Mashabela, Ms N to ask the Minister of Basic Education to ask the Minister of Basic Education
Whether she intends to intervene in the Limpopo Department of Basic Education in order to resolve the scholar transport problem with urgency at the Ramotshabi Secondary School in Limpopo where learners are still walking 14 kilometres to and from school and where a grade 12 learner from the said school was raped on her way from school on 12 June 2020?
Information received from the Limpopo Department of Education indicates that, the Limpopo Department of Education appointed a service provider in January 2020 to transport learners to Ramotshabi Secondary School. Unfortunately, the service provider’s contract was terminated due to misrepresentation of facts, such as the submission of fraudulent documents. The replacement Service Provider has been appointed to transport learners with effect from 14 July 2020.
