Illegal PMB hostels raided

Authorities have investigated illegal boarding houses after The Witness reported last Friday about hundreds of school children living in grim conditions across the city and northern suburbs.

The Witness reported that parents from as far afield as the Eastern Cape accept accommodation in boarding houses in order to enroll their children in local schools. Many of the children appeared to be falling through the cracks as authorities were not addressing their plight, and seemed unaware of it. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
