SA to hear school reopening update on Tuesday

CAPE TOWN- Minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga will give an update on the preparations for the reopening of South Africans schools on Tuesday at 16h00.

Last week Motshekga postponed a planned briefing on the state of readiness to reopen schools. She is meeting today with the Council of Education Ministers.

Schools across the country have been closed for over two months now due to the Covid-19 outbreak. 

The department said the delay in the update has been due to some challenges with the deliveries of personal protective equipment (PPE) to certain provinces, which led to the cancellation of some contracts with service providers.

Here’s where you can watch the briefing live tomorrow at 16h00.
