Durban - KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Education has vowed to stamp out growing incidents of crime at some schools in the province that recently saw a teacher gunned down in the corridors of a primary school.
MEC Kwazi Mshengu said he had come up with a multi-pronged plan to fight crime around schools and planned to present it at the provincial cabinet on Wednesday for adoption.
Part of the plan includes working closer with police and school governing bodies.
"I have a plan to make schools safer places of learning and teaching. I first have to present my plan to the cabinet before unveiling it," said Mshengu.
Mshengu said the plan would include deploying security personnel, working with satellite police, stations, police visibility, community involvement.
