in the last 20 years has turned into a gangster’s paradise, with no respect for decent and noble working life.

Father-of-three Thulani Manqoyi, 53, was shot dead by two men while sitting in his car at the Heinz Park Primary School in Philippi. Two suspects had approached the Grade 6 maths teacher at around 7.45am yesterday – 21 September 2021- and opened fire, with pupils scattering in fear, before fleeing the scene on foot.

In Mzansi essentially life is cheap. Essentials skills eroded, resources usurped, people are staying alive living by the barrel of the gun.
