The Democratic Alliance wants law to take its course at public school


Over twenty two learners at Bosele LSEN School in Monstrerlus were allegedly taken to Klipspruit clinic and later were alleged to be transferred to the Groblersdal and Matlala hospital over eating poisoned food at school.

For that reason, the Democratic Alliance in Limpopo has referred these allegations to the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC).

It is alleged that learners were vomiting after their lunch at school and were taken to the nearest hospital.

The DA believes it is imperative that these allegations are immediately investigated by the commission as well as the department of health.

“It is unacceptable that our children are exposed to contaminated food in a place where they are meant to take precaution against such incidents, especially because this school caters for vulnerable blind learners,” DA provincial spokesperson emphasised.

According to the DA it is not yet clear what they ate that has led to the outbreak of vomiting.

“It is clear that the rights of our learners are being grossly violated by being exposed to the contaminated food that they consumed.

We are deeply concerned because this is the second time, two years ago learners’ experienced similar symptoms at Bosele School,” he said.

The DA advises the despatched team of health investigators to the school must test the food to check for the cause of the outbreak and also inspect the condition under which food is stored in order to safeguard the lives of the learners.

“If the outcomes of the allegations are accurate, the MEC for Education must immediately make sure action is taken against who are responsible. Therefore government must ensure that incidents like this do not occur again and learners’ food kept and handled in hygienic manners at all times,” he said.

The DA promise, under their administration all government school will provide a safe and conductive environment for learning and teaching to ensure that we build one South Africa for all
