Department Taken To Court Over Unfed School Children

Wednesday, 7 July, 2021 - 11:27 Author Melikhaya Zagagana

Education Activists organisations have taken the Department of Basic Education to court over what they call the "Breach of Court Order." It is not the first time that the organisations have taken the Department to court, read further for more details.


The Department of Education (DBE) is being taken to court by Education Activists, Equal Education (EE) and Section 27 over unfed school children.

The EE says the DBE is undermining the order of the court to provide school qualifying children with meals. The court order was enforced to the DBE in June 2020 and they are now are forced to go back to court on the basis of failing to follow the court judgement against them.

The previous judgement granted that government should ensure the qualifying learners for the nutrition programme are getting meals whether they are attending school or not.

The court order requires the DBE to feed over 9 million school children a day, and according to the EE, the DBE sent reports showing that 1.5 million learners remain unfed due to rotational timetable under Covid-19 pandemic.

The solution for child hunger should be the national school nutrition programme… food parcels can assist… its not rocket science if you are committed to feeding children… said the Head of Education Rights

- Section 27's Dr Faranaaz Veriava.

The EE added that the DBE has failed to make plans that are in line with changes enforced by Covid-19 pandemic causing a big gap of children going to school without food.

The Department's failure to provide pupils with food might mean that many children who qualify for the government nutrition programme have dropped out of school as a result.

Education Activists action aims at ensuring that no school going children are left behind on the basis that they are hungry and therefore can’t benefit on their education right.

Teacher Vaccinations Expected To Finish By Friday

Wednesday, 7 July, 2021 - 11:12 Author Sakinah Samuels

Just like that, we are near to the end of the education sector vaccine rollout, which the department hopes will help bring schools back to normal. This rollout is expected to finish by 9 July.


Department initially aimed to finish by today, 7 July but the Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga, has now said that they'll finish by Friday for the latest.

She says by close of business yesterday, more than 400 000 teachers and staff in the sector have been vaccinated.

I do hope that by the end of the day, we would have reached 550 000 of the teachers that we have vaccinated.

Discovery Health Chief Commercial Officer has also said that this week, they have vaccinated more than 10 000 teachers and staff in the Basic Education Sector.

The Department aims to vaccinate around 583 000 people by Thursday 8 July. Vaccination rollout for the sector commenced on 23 June.

More than 16 000 teachers are on special leave due to having comorbidities. Department wants to encourage these teachers to get vaccinated and quite possibly have them back in schools.

First phase of vaccine rollout is said to have gone very well. However, some delays with independent schools, janitors and other staff vaccinations. Those individuals who are not on the the Personal and Salary System (PERSAL) system but work in the school environment were only loaded on to the vaccination system recently.

There were also around 20 000 teachers who tested positive during this vaccination period and could then not be vaccinated. The Department plans to vaccinate them once school reopen. Along with these individuals are those who received flu vaccines and those who are pregnant.

We are going to reconcile all those figures to say of those people who can't be vaccinated, how many are there and then make plans as to how and when we are going to vaccinate them.

"Most provinces are doing mostly well," the Minister said.

The Department has made it their mission to dispel any myths which results in people hesitating and refusing to vaccinate. Some individuals have religious reasons behind their refusal, which the Minister says they respect.

How Do You Start A YouTube Channel And Get Paid?

Wednesday, 7 July, 2021 - 10:39 Author Terrique Faro

Have you ever thought about starting your own YouTube channel? It sounds intimidating, but it's actually a lot easier than you might think. With this step by step guide, you'll learn everything you need to know to start your own successful YouTube channel right way and make money in simple steps!

Youtube Youtube Setup Equipment

Get yourself a good quality camera to do your Youtube videos with. Your camera should be at least 1080p. It will be helpful to look for a camera with a flip screen.


Sound is almost as important as video. Viewers will be less interested in your videos if you don’t have a clear sound or you have too much background noise.

Soft boxes

These are a great investment if you want to create some clear lighting for your videos. Natural lighting works but it can be tricky.

Ring Light

You can use a ring light instead of the soft box. The main advantage is that it’s more affordable and takes less space.


You need a tripod in order you hold your camera.

Editing software

Some of the best video editing software include Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Vegas Pro and iMovie. To improve the way your video appears, there are a lot of graphics and media to add to
your videos to produce professional quality visual effects. To differentiate your brand, you should create a high quality logo which will help to increase your subscribers and deliver the message of who you are and how can you help. The logo should be included in all your social media platforms content as well.

You’ll also need a YouTube video introduction. This is a short video that normally acts as opening credits. It should be helpful to set the tone and welcome people to your channel. Just few seconds and nice music will do the trick and help to create the mood.

You can also find free stock footage for YouTube. These are videos that you didn’t create but which you have permission to use. You may use royalty free images to illustrate points you’re making.

How to start a Youtube channel:
  1. Create your Google Account: https://accounts.google.com/SignUp
  2. Go to www.youtube.com and sign in.  
  3. Give your Youtube channel a name and click "Create".

SASSA Warns Of Fake R750 Food Vouchers

Wednesday, 7 July, 2021 - 09:18 Author Bulelani Dyomfana

The South African Social Security Agency in KZN wishes to alert the public of fake messages making the rounds on social media, targeting unemployed persons. SASSA is often used as a cover for criminals to take advantage of vulnerable individuals.


SASSA says that there are messages that have recently been shared on social media platforms, leading some people to believe that SASSA is issuing food vouchers of R750 to unemployed persons.

The agency then went and clarified:

These reports are not true and are misleading the public. We urge the public to exercise caution not to be duped by hoax messages.

SASSA has urged the public to remain alert and contact them about anyone who falsely represents themselves as one of their officials. 

"We appeal to the public to be vigilant, if people are uncertain about information purporting to be from SASSA"

SASSA has an anti-fraud strategy to crack down on criminals and anyone trying to take advantage of beneficiaries.  

SASSA CEO, Totsie Memela said as part of the anti-fraud strategy, SASSA is working with the justice system to crack down on attempts of fraud and theft. 

"We have adopted a zero-tolerance approach to fraud and will stop at nothing to root it out at first sight, so criminals, be warned," said Memela.

Should you suspect any suspicious behaviour, you are urged to contact SASSA immediately or call their customer care number 033 846 3400 or 0800 60 10 11 to verify the veracity of such information.

We Want Our NSFAS Allowances Immediately - CUT Students

Wednesday, 7 July, 2021 - 09:12 Author Sakinah Samuels

Students at the Central University of Technology are demanding that the University disburses their NSFAS allowances as well as other demands in the interest of students. The University has announced that they will be suspending classes as well.


There has recently been protest action at the Central University of Technology (CUT) in Bloemfontein with students demanding their NSFAS allowances, immediately. Students have said that this is a problem which comes up every month.

Grenades and rubber bullets were used to disperse students who have blocked streets surrounding the campus.

Some students who have received allowances have also seen that the amounts reflected on the student portal are not the same as what they've received.

This bulk of allowances students are waiting for include the accommodation and meals allowance. These students have said that the University is delaying payments unfairly with some students being evicted from their accommodation due to not having received their allowances.

CUT has said that they have been paying NSFAS allowances from their own funds.

The University's management has said that the reason behind these delays are because students’ details are not correct or complete and that they need correct information such as bank details to disburse allowances properly.

On the other hand, students who were protesting have said that these delays are due to the University not sending the registration template to NSFAS, "which resulted in students being unfunded".

When asked about delayed allowances, NSFAS themselves have always said that they have disbursed funds to Universities and it is then up to these Universities to disburse the allowances. Early in the year, another reason would be that NSFAS is waiting for Universities to provide them with registration data of students.

To address this issue, the University released a statement on Monday saying, "To date 10 306 students’ allowances were paid through FUNDI. 789 students have problems with their bank accounts, while 702 students have no banking details on the FUNDI system."

However, one CUT student said:

We reject the appointment of Fundi as a third party because we need the institution to have the capacity to distribute the allowances ... they must hire more staff so that they can be able to issue the allowances in time. 

Students are calling for the University to take the situation seriously and to increase their capacities to make sure these processes are done on time.

"It's not justifiable why the institution of technology cannot develop a system that can be able to pay the students in time."

CUT has said that they've been working with the Student Representative Council (SRC) to resolve these issues but protesting students have said that they reject the current SRC because "the SRC that is in place today was not voted for by students, it was imposed to us by management".

Students at the University are also calling for the suspension of the Vice-Chancellor, Henk de Jager and to lift the suspension of student leaders.

The University has suspended classes and announced an early recess from 7 July until 16 July saying, "The decision to allow an early recess is informed by the COVID-19 third wave, and the sporadic violent protests, acts of intimidation, and illegal gatherings by groups of students at both campuses."

Early Childhood Development To Become Part of Basic Education

Tuesday, 6 July, 2021 - 12:46 Author Melikhaya Zagagana

Big changes in the Social Development and Basic Education sector are coming as Early Childhood Development will now form part of Basic Education. The new development comes after a number of reasons were discussed, read further to learn more.


Early Childhood Development (ECD) will no longer fall under the Department of Social Development, the new development means the ECD will now be part of the Department of Basic Education (DBE).

The announcement comes when the DBE recently started the vaccination of teachers, and will now have to take more numbers from ECD teachers as the country battles with third wave of covid-19.

It is however mentioned that the vaccination of ECD teachers will only start from Grade R to Grade three, but teachers of children from birth to four years will not form part of the roll-out. This move has not yet been confirmed as the ECD is still not part of DBE just yet.

The change follows the outcry of the ECD workforce need to be counted as essential workers for vaccination programme because they also come into contact with children on a daily basis.

The Social Development sector has been suffering with a lot of challenges facing the ECDs and getting criticism from communities about people who practiced as the ECDs without the necessary qualifications.

The department has been accused of not caring enough for children to protect them against the abuse from their centres of learning.  

The Minister of Social Development, Lindiwe Zulu announced, that the handover will officially be finalised on 1 April 2022. 

This change was announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa in the 2019 State of the Nation Address. The main reason was said to improve the development of children and quality of their education.

It remains to be seen if the Basic Education sector is ready to cope with this big change under the challenges that comes will covid-19.

SASSA To Start Staggering R350 Grant Payments

Tuesday, 6 July, 2021 - 11:32 Author Sakinah Samuels

Minister Lindiwe Zulu has said that SASSA will start staggering R350 grant payments from today. She also said that discussions on extending the Special Relief of Distress grant continue.


Social Development Minister, Lindiwe Zulu, has said that payments of R350 grants will commence on today, 6 July. 

During her speech on the Alert Level 4 of the Risk-Adjusted Strategy, she said:

This month, payments of social grants will start on Tuesday 6 July. Once again, we appeal to all grant recipients that they do not need to collect their grants on the day it becomes available, but can collect their grants on any day as their monies will remain in their accounts and will not be taken away from them.

Over R700 million in R350 grants are yet to paid to qualifying beneficiaries with Zulu saying that this is due to SASSA needing to verify whether people qualified or not. SASSA has announced that payments are underway and that those who have been approved will still get paid.

If you applied before 30 April but you're waiting for feedback, if you're approved or have already been, you will then still receive payments backdated from the month you applied. Payments will however only be made for the month of April or earlier.

The Minister said she continues to fight for the extension on the R350 grant.

“We are still in engagement with Treasury. Yes, of course we are conscious of the fact that the purse is really really squeezed because there’s so much demands, including the demand of the buying of the vaccines,” she continued to explain.

The department hopes that with the continued discussion, they might get a positive response from the Minister of Finance as well as Treasury. 

Government has previously said that they can’t afford to extend the grant any further.

When the grant was introduced, it was supposed to come to an end in October 2020 but continued to be extended until it’s last extension of 30 April. However, with lockdown continuing, more job losses being seen and fewer jobs available, many argue that the grant should still be continuing.
