Thubelihle High School, a 'high-risk' school in Soweto, was closed by parents. See explanations

Angry parents have forced the closure of Thubelilhe High School in White City, Soweto, after five years of repairs.

Parents claim that the school's mobile classrooms are in poor condition, with some claiming that they lack windows and doors. They further claim that the roof of the school is leaking and could collapse, putting students' lives in danger.

The school's drainage system, according to the parents, is also broken.

Hamilton Chetsanga, a ward councilor, said the community's objections had gone unheard. "We want results right now; we don't want additional plans; we just want things [renovations] done," Chetsanga remarked.

Steve Mabona, a spokesperson for Gauteng Education, pledged that the department will deploy "appropriate" mobile units by the end of the month to relieve the pressure on staff and students.

Mabona, on the other hand, encouraged the students to continue attending school, stating that learning must continue.
