Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi has expressed shock at the brutal murder of a principal of a Johannesburg school just days before the start of the new school year.
Emmanuel Tshivhase (53) was shot and killed Thursday, just 3km from the Jabulile Secondary School in Orange Farm.
It’s understood that Tshivhase had stopped on the side of the road to take a call when he was ambushed by an unknown assailant.
Departmental spokesperson Steve Mabona said officials have visited the family.
“MEC Lesufi is disturbed by the death of one of our principles, especially in the midst of preparations for the opening of our schools on 15 January.”
