Angry parents shut down ‘death trap’ school
A Cape Town school, where staff members are forced to use buckets to flush the toilets and where lights remain turned off due to fears of electrocution, has been shut down by livid parents who say their children are being taught in a death trap.
Forced to use buckets to flush the toilets!
Kwafaku Primary in Lower Crossroads was built in 2000 and is an experimental project, as the building is made out of Styrofoam and concrete.
But the building had deteriorated to such a state that dozens of parents denied the 1 212 pupils access to the school out of fear that the classrooms could collapse.
Principal Maureen Figlan was unable to reason with the irate parents on Monday.
