Gauteng Education MEC, Panyaza Lesufi, says all information about the shooting of a school principal at Buyani Primary in Finetown, Johannesburg, will be forwarded to police for investigation.

The principal was shot and killed inside the school premises on Friday morning. Lesufi says he received an email recently.

“Around March this year, I received an email from concerned people around this area raising challenges about this school and the district was forwarded that email to intervene and they did so. In the last three months, we thought everything was sorted out until we got this sad news this morning. We will hand over that information to the police so that they can start with their investigation and we can understand what is the cause,” MEC Lesufi says.

“But from the video footage, it is quite clear that this was a hit….that someone was assigned to do what they have done. We want to condemn that,” he adds.

Earlier, at around 7 am on Friday morning police found the body of the principal inside a vehicle that was idling outside the school premises.
