DBE Forced to publish Matric results after Afriforum granted court interdict

The Gauteng High Court in Pretoria mentioned that matric results ought to be circulated on all stages, on Tuesday, 18 January. This comes after the Department of Basic Education (DBE) revealed that results would not be unreservedly open this year.


Last week, the tutoring office said the circulation of matric results would be an encroachment of the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) and as needs be the training would arrive at a resolution in 2022.

This actuated a desperate deny by Afriforum and two distinct social occasions, while the South African National Editors Forum (SANEF) cried that the non-conveyance of the 2021 matric results would subvert print circulations, which are currently in a risky financial situation.

The desperate restrict was permitted, unaltered, by the Pretoria High Court on Tuesday.

The matric results are depended upon to be followed through on Thursday, 20 January - and media stages should be allowed to disseminate because the tutoring office as of late shown that it would not conflict with the preclude.

"It is in the public interest that this information is shared on open stages and that is one motivation behind why we brought this application.

"We are enchanted that the court agreed with us in this conflict," said Natasha Venter, Manager of Education Rights at AfriForum.
