Mandy Wiener speaks to Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi about reopening schools and returning to daily classes.

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi says the province is ready for students to go back to daily classes from 2 August.

Speaking to Mandy Wiener, Lesufi says in Gauteng, about 93% of the teacher population has accepted to be vaccinated.

We are left with almost 7% and about 4,000 educators in Gauteng have underlying diseases and have reported that to us and they are worried about the state of their health.

Panyaza Lesufi, Education MEC - Gauteng

We are trying very hard to avoid a situation where we have a generation that couldn't go to school. We should start somewhere so we can monitor the infection within the schooling environment.
