Two children went to school as normal and after lunch had to be rushed to hospital for what looked like food poisoning. It got worse when their parents received news no parent never wants to hear, they had died. Then a third child also died and it all seemed to be from food by the feeding scheme at school.
A few lab tests were done and showed the kids had eaten dough and cake, which were not part of the menu, but someone came forward saying they had supplied cake for the children.
Gauteng MEC for education Panyaza Lesufi is handling the case and says he's talking to the parents and the school. He also said the food suppliers were fired, but made it clear he wasn't pointing any fingers, yet.
Post Office employees are still not seeing the money. Yesterdays employees complained that they were not paid and this morning John Robbie got a call and a few SMS's from listeners who work at the Post Office who also say they still haven't been paid.
The Post Office has said that people were paid yesterday but this seems inaccurate as we got a number of people still complaining. What exactly is the reason behind this, is it a technical glitch, is it linked to what some say is a strike or is there any other reason why employees are not paid and will they get paid and when?
Opposition parties want the President of the country Jacob Zuma to appear before an adhoc committee and that Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's recommendations be implemented regarding the overspending on Nkandla, but ANC is against this. The issue is being debated later today, stay tuned.
