ANCYL And Cosas Demands Charterhouse School Close Due To Covid-19

Congress of South African Students (Cosas) and the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) threatened to close Charterhouse

South Africa, Johannesburg – The Congress of South African Students (Cosas) and the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) rally outside Charterhouse, a private school in Roodepoort, on Tuesday citing the closure of the school due to Covid-19 

Cosas and ANCYL members sang outside the school. The ANCYL’s Lindokuhle Xulu confronted management, saying the school was “bringing young children with the weak immune system to school to kill them”.

However, AdvTEch School chief executive Mike Aitken denied Xulu’s accusations, saying teachers had plans in place to ensure that children were physically distant.

Xulu said schools should be open during a pandemic.

Gauteng Department of Education spokesperson Steve Mabona, who was at the school as well, said some of the schools were operating before the government gazetted the decision to delay the reopening of schools.

“The gazette allows them to operate from February 1. We all need to toe the line and make sure we don’t find ourselves in a situation where we encourage people to come to our schools and close them,” Mabona said.
