Julius Malema wants schools closed in 7 days, or he will do it himself to protect the youth.

The EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters) have decided to take action on a very serious matter. Julius Malema has given Motshekga seven days to close schools, or he claims he will do it himself. As tensions rise, I would like to explore this topic and find out exactly why he did this. Here is everything we know.

Ever since Hard Lockdown hit last year, the schooling schedule has been unreliable, to say the least. Schools have opened and closed multiple times. This is because it's dangerous to have students go to school, with a virus on the loose. Nevertheless, the Government has seemed eager to reopen schools and keep them opened.

For some it seems as if they have been ignoring the needs of the youth and there safety. However this is all speculation. In line with this Julius Malema has given out his own deadline. He wants schools to close in seven days, because he believes that the government is not taking the lives of the children seriously. If they fail to listen to him, he has vowed to close schools with his own party the EFF.

How they would do this is in typical EFF fashion. By possibly protecting and causing a disruption to either the school system or the transportation system. While I do agree with the EFF and believe that schools need to be closed in order to keep our children safe, I always fine myself questioning Julius Malemas intentions. I personally do not trust his intentions when some thing like this happens.

With this deadline given, it is interesting to see how the government responds. Will they buckles and give in to his demands or will they ignore him and cause a confrontation out in the real world. 

More important than that is how this will actually affect the lives of School children. Will this politician war negatively affect their education or if the fact that they are fighting to save lives more justified. Will Matric students have enough guidance and lessons to make it through their exams. Or will we have another year of less than good results. What do you think, tell me in the comments and follow for more news as it happens.
