“Drug lords are targeting our learners and
destroying their lives. The Provincial police structures should set up a
tangible plan that will deter drug lords to enter schools and sell drugs
“The plan to prevent drug lords from entering
schools must be incorporated in sector policing and should be
prioritised as priority number one, together with the intelligence
“The Department of Education in the Provinces
must apply to the Safety and Security Department for the schools to be
categorised as gun-free and drug-free zones."
"The IFP urge the School Governing Bodies to
keep a close eye on the implementation of the mechanisms as to ensure
that schools will become and remain safe, drug- and gun-free areas,”
Mr Ndlovu concluded.
