At least 11 schools in Mkhambathini, near Pietermaritzburg, will not be reopening on Wednesday due to threats of disruptions from the community.

This was revealed by the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Education on Tuesday. The schools will only open on Thursday.

This follows threats from certain members of the community to prevent teachers and pupils from gaining access to the schools when the schools reopen.
