Lesufi said that the teachers on the trip would be charged individually based on an investigation into whether they were guilty of negligent behaviour.

A week after the tragic news of a grade 8 pupil’s death during a school camp made headlines, Gauteng MEC for education Panyaza Lesufi has revealed that the Parktown Boys' High class of 2020 went on the trip before being granted authorisation.

The Gauteng education department said on Friday that the school's principal, Malcolm Williams, had been suspended with immediate effect after the death of Enoch Mpianzi. The 13-year-old Parktown pupil died last week during a river rafting activity while on an orientation camp, leading to widespread claims of negligence on behalf of the school and the camp staff. Lesufi told a news briefing the camping trip had not been approved by the department at a district level. The school, he said, insisted on going on the trip regardless of completion, with Lesufi placing the blame on Williams for allowing this. He also announced that the officials at a district level who did not flag the request with the department’s head office would also be immediately suspended. Read more: Times LIVE

He means based on whether they are white... obviously. He already has SAHRCommission on it! Whatever. Now will the Dept of Basic Education tell us why they didn't take a similarly aggressive and vindictive approach when 5 year old children died in pit toilets, and instead fought the miserly financial settlements awarded against them. m not being heartless but so many people to be charged because of one child who went to the water? come on the child was not killed by any of these workers, government must stop gaining popularity by reacting than prevention.
