Johannesburg - The Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) said on Thursday that they were disappointed to report that the Dr WF Nkomo High School in Atteridgeville had experienced a second robbery in the space of a week.

“It is really devastating, we are under siege. How can criminals be allowed to target our schools in this manner?" said Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi.

The GDE said that on Wednesday, criminals broke into the Dr WF Nkomo High School and stole two smartboards and abandoned three on the school premises.
