The Western Cape Department of Education today said policing falls under national government and not provincial. 

This as the department has been accused of not doing enough to protect learners at Manenberg schools where gang violence has been on the increase. 

Ministerial Spokesperson Bronagh Casey said the WCED cannot or any other provincial education departments assume the role of police in protecting communities from gangsterism. 

Casey said the department is very much concerned about the safety of teachers and learners at school. But the department depends on the security services for safety and security.
