CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape Education Department is investigating a case of vandalism after a Khayelitsha school was torched.
It's understood some learners ransacked Matthew Goniwe Memorial shortly before the start of class on Monday.
Staff and pupils were evacuated after learners allegedly trashed the school's kitchen and set several desks alight.
The department's Paddy Attwell says the motive for the attack is not known.
"The learners smashed windows and burned desks among other damage. Our district office alerted police and the situation later returned to normal. The department is investigating all aspects."
