CAPE TOWN - Nelson Mandela Mayor Danny Jordaan's office says the situation in Port Elizabeth has completely stabilised following a chaotic demonstration over teacher shortages.

More than two dozen schools were forced to shut last week when a peaceful protest exploded in running battles between dozens of community members and police.

Parents insisted the schools close due to a lack of teachers.

Jordaan's spokesperson Mlungisi Ncame says teacher recruitment has been prioritised.

"All the affected schools are back to functionality, they are working and by last week Thursday normal tuition had started at the school and [Jordaan] met with all the principals and they confirmed that schools are back to normal."
