JOHANNESBURG - A meeting by a government inter-ministerial task team with traditional leaders, student governing bodies and community members is being held at a local church in Vuwani.

The high profile meeting comes after the delivery of mobile classroom to some schools in the area.



At least 20 schools were burnt or vandalised during violent protests over the incorporation of the community into a new municipality.

The meeting is aimed at finding solutions to the challenges that are still affecting the community of Vuwani and surrounding areas.

Locals have raised concerns over their children's safety if they do go back to school, some fear schools may be attacked again.

At least 74 mobile classrooms were delivered to schools in Vuwani and surrounding areas.

The resumption of teaching and learning in the Limpopo community saw a slow start, with schools recording a dismal turnout of teachers and pupils on Monday.

A few schools in the area have since seen some improvement in the attendance of pupils today and teachers, while some school gates remain closed.
