"Most of our schools are not safe. I tweeted that not long ago. In most schools, kids have to wait outside school between 6am and 7am waiting for gates to be opened. No shelter no nothing, while billions are stolen or unspent and returned @DBE_SA @EducationGP1 @GovernmentZA"

"Will this BS ever stop though? It's become a daily activity now. @SAPoliceService please arrest the syndicate behind these abductions/kidnappings."

"Something needs to get done about the kidnappings. It doesn’t help to inform people if there’s no action from police and government about this trend."
