KwaMhlanga - Classes at Sizamile Primary School in KwaMhlanga have resumed, the Mpumalanga education department said on Tuesday.

“Things are going well. Learners and educators are back at school. The report we get from our circuit is that things are going well since Monday,” spokesman Gerald Sambo said.

Disgruntled parents closed the school last week demanding the removal of the principal and her deputy, accusing them of corruption and intimidation. They also alleged the principal was divisive.

“The department intervened and it was decided that the all learners and educators must return to school,” Sambo said.

The principal and her deputy also reported for duty on Monday. - Sapa
