Durban - A teachers organisation said attacks on teachers must not become a norm and teachers must not be soft targets
Kwazi Mshengu, the MEC for Education in KZN, said Sboniso Nyawose, 49, was shot dead by two men while walking in the school corridor at Masuku Primary school on Gaze Makhanya Avenue on Tuesday.
Shawn Herbst, a spokesperson for Netcare 911, said the teacher was shot in the head and abdomen and died at the scene.
"Nyawose was allegedly shot dead by two random people who had gained unauthorised access to the school premises, this is beside the fact that the school does have a security guard officially employed by the department of education," Mshengu said.
Colonel Thembeka Mbele, a KZN police spokesperson, said case of murder has been opened for investigation by Folweni SAPS.
