Union Condemns Murder Of High School Teacher


It appears that gun violence continues to plague schools across the country, with the latest casualty being a teacher at a High School in KwaZulu-Natal. The incident has prompted a response from one of the country's biggest teacher unions.



The Basic Education Department in KwaZulu Natal has recently lost one of its educators, who lost his life in front of learners.

This follows a break-in at Sea Cow Lake Secondary School, in which learners were robbed while attending extra classes on school premises. After getting into a confrontation with three armed robbers, the learners' teacher, Muzi Zulu was shot in the face. 

Nomarashiya Caluza, a spokesperson for the South African Democratic Teachers Union (SADTU), said in a recent statement that such instances make teachers and students fearful.

Something that we always say is that schools are no longer safe such that it is so easy for criminals to just barge into our schools and do whatever they want.

She further stated that SADTU continues to implore residents to love and protect their schools. Because the people who are committing these crimes are from the community, only when community members are ready to protect their schools will these killings stop.

The union also expressed solidarity with those affected by the incident sending their heartfelt condolences to the family of Muzi as well as to the school.
