But surely THE Minister is also accountable? You set policy you engage with dept of education... Accountability stops with You Sir First criminals are members of sadtunational who were playing cards, instead of supervising kids, worse teachers ever And those who run initiation schools / camps where how many die a year.... they in jail yet?!
Actually it is true justice to lay criminal charges to both the school and the camp... Why are we still saying 'could'? It must be done. A young black childs life has been taken and we demand action. GE MEC is to be blamed for this tragic childs death. Stop blaming everyone, 'Could be'? As much as this is needed, but justice should never take sides.
10 infants died in Tembisa Hospital. What charges then This one is trying to be a hero. Agree. Same goes for pit toilets. Manholes been left open etc etc
