High school students were on strike on Thursday morning in Mamelodi. It is believed that the learners were striking because they did not get tablet devices from their schools. Lehlabile Secondary School was one of the schools that learners were released early from by a boy from Tsako-Thabo Secondary School. He started the strike that morning and the learners from Lehlabile were released as well as learners from other schools. They couldn’t have lessons that day due to strike. Learners will continue with the strike until tomorrow and they believe that the strike is a way of reflecting their emotions and dissatisfactions. A response to the matter will be issued later by the teachers or the Department of Education.
