Cosas calls for Malamulele intervention
The student group has also called for schooling to stop across the country until pupils are protected.
JOHANNESBURG - The Congress of South African Students (Cosas) has called on government to urgently intervene in Malamulele in Limpopo, where schooling for the 2015 academic year has not started due to protests over service delivery.
The town has been on lockdown since the municipal demarcation board announced that Malamulele will not have its own municipality last week.
Since January, four schools have been set alight.
Residents claim services are being channeled to Tshivenda speakers to the detriment of their own community.
The student group has also called for schooling to stop across the country until pupils in Malamulele are protected.
Cosas President Sandra Baloyi says, "We are calling on government to attend to the issue of Malamulele and see how best they can resolve it so that our pupils can go back to school."
