Former Grade 12 pupils of an Eastern Cape school implicated in the 2014 matric cheating scandal have taken over and shut down the school, demanding their certificates.

No teaching and learning has taken place at Gxaba Senior Secondary School in Lujizweni village in Ngqeleni since the takeover on Monday.

Teachers have been reporting to the district education office while more than 1300 pupils are forced to stay home.

The angry former pupils, who have moved into the school and even sleep there, yesterday allegedly threatened to burn the school to the ground tomorrow if the department failed to give them their certificates.

School principal Thamsanqa Kabalaza confirmed that staff was now reporting to the department of education’s district offices.
The Department is yet to intervene in the matter
