MEC for Education in Western Cape has confirmed that three teachers at ACJ Phakade Primary School in Nomzamo in Strand were hijacked at gun point on Monday as they were arriving at the school.
She says five armed men arrived at the school's premises and held them hostage at gun point and hijacked their cars.
This is the fifth robbery attack in the school's premises in the Western Cape in the past month, says Schäfer.
We need more visible policing around the schools particularly at the start and end of a school day.— Debbie Schäfer, Western Cape Education MEC
The criminals are getting very strategic at how they approach it.
Schäfer says the police are conducting investigations on this incident and four other cases.
She says they are busy piloting the use of private security in school to see its impact on the matter.
