What others are saying?
Many users took to social media platforms in disgust, describing the alleged arson as a “vindictive attack” and an “out right embarrassment” for South Africa. People on the Twitter platform are speculating that this could be work of tenders, due to the lockdown they are out of work and by burning the school down they will be tasked to rebuild.
Perhaps someone wanting the gig to “rebuild” it ? ??♂️— DJ Fresh (Big Dawg) (@DJFreshSA) April 9, 2020
Check the Companies that are receiving tenders to built schools, they need more work.— Emma Booi (@BooiEmma) April 9, 2020
Public works must employ full time builders to build schools and stop the Tender system.
These might be tender guys. There are no protests (anger)— Sagwadi Maluleke (@masagwadi) April 8, 2020
