The DA wants Gauteng Education MEC Barbara Creecy to investigate Letsatsing Combined school in Carletonville for allegedly forcing parents to pay schools fees even though the school has been declared a no fee school.

The DA has is in possession of receipts from parents who have paid schools fees ranging from R300 to R950. Many parents are battling to keep up with these payments.

Parents contacted the DA alleging that they are being contacted by lawyers demanding that they pay school fees.

I have sent proof of payments to the MEC after a shoddy reply to my formal questions in the Gauteng Legislature denying this practice.

This situation is unacceptable and an urgent investigation is needed to bring the guilty parties to book.
