DA to walk in solidarity with Magaedisha learners

Media Advisory:

On Monday, 02 March 2015, the DA leadership will embark on a solidarity walk with Magaedisha high school learners some of whom suffered from rape incidents while walking home after school.

Three school girls were raped and one experienced attempted rape. All these incidents occurred just in February this year.

Learners are forced to walk between 30 minutes and 3 hours to and from school due to the department of education’s failure to provide scholar transport for the learners.

Majority of these learners walk from Sebati, Podile, Laastehoop, Lekgothwane and Mmaboyi villages to Pae Pae village where their school is.

The walk will be led by the DA Provincial Leader and Education Spokesperson, Jacques Smalle (MPL),Provincial Chairperson, Langa Bodlani (MPL) and DA councillors and activists.

Date                :  Monday, 02 March 2015

Time                :  13h00

Venue             :  Pae Pae Village outside Boyne
