The Star would like to set the record straight on an article published to the IOL website.

On November 9, 2023, Independent Media via The Star published an article on the Independent Online website, which also appeared on The Star’s Facebook page and X (Twitter) account, which created the impression that Optimi Home (Pty) Ltd t/a Impaq had been raided by the Gauteng Department of Education and was closed by the said Department by way of a “letter of closure” served on Optimi Home (Pty) Ltd t/a Impaq.

Optimi Home (Pty) Ltd t/a Impaq was neither raided by the Gauteng Education Department, nor served with a letter of closure.

Independent Media apologises for any harm caused to Optimi Home (Pty) Ltd t/a Impaq.
