Classes at Sithembele Mathiso High School in New Crossroads are resuming today after the killing of its acting principal, Nomzoxolo Dziba.
Yesterday the Western Cape Department of Education closed the school for the day. Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga and Deputy Minister of Police Fikile Mbalula were among the officials visiting the school to speak to teachers and the governing body.
Dziba was gunned down in her office on Monday.
Gugulethu police spokesperson Captain Elliot Sinyangana said the principal was awaiting the arrival of a scheduled appointment.
“Shortly before the incident happened, a white Toyota Corolla was spotted and shots were fired,” said Sinyangana.
He says no arrests have been made and the public are requested to assist the police in their investigation.
