JOHANNESBURG – Organisers of a go-slow by about 28 schools in Johannesburg are expected to shed more light on Tuesday morning about their protest.

It’s understood that the protest by coloured teachers is in solidarity with their counterparts at Klipspruit West Secondary School in Soweto.

Last week, learning and teaching was disrupted at the school following a demonstration by community members over the appointment of a black principal.

They claim that the process of appointing the headmaster was flawed.

Organiser Charis Pretorius has accused the government of ignoring their grievances.

“We did, however, meet with a few of the teachers and principal, that have either been at schools in Eldorado Park, that are currently in school in the area and who have experienced the same kind of issues.”
