DURBAN - The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) said next Monday was an unrealistic date for the gradual resumption of the academic programme.

IFP president Velenkosini Hlabisa said that based on the party’s assessment, the Education Department was poorly equipped to reopen schools for grade 7 and matric pupils next week.

“Schools should remain closed and not open until all necessary PPEs and infrastructure are in place to ensure that schools are a safe place for teaching and learning.”

Hehas called on Education Minister Angie Motshekga to stop what he called a "rush game" in the reopening of schools and adequately ensure safety.
