Close to 140 schools in KZN were damaged during the recent riots which saw businesses looted and infrastructure vandalised.

According to Acting Minister in the Presidency Khumbudzo Ntshavheni 139 schools in KZN were vandalised while four were damaged in Gauteng. “Equipment and food meant for the school nutrition programme were stolen, which means the schools are not able to provide their food nutrition programme to their vulnerable learners,” she said.

Apart from the damage to schools, Ntshavheni said the riots also resulted in 20 SA Social Security Agency (Sassa) offices in KZN being vandalised.
