Gauteng education MEC Panyaza Lesufi on Wednesday urged pupils, teachers and the community to protect the multimillion-rand Menzi Primary School in Tsakane, east of Johannesburg.

The state-of-the-art school, which cost R105m to build, was officially opened by Gauteng premier David Makhura.

Lesufi appealed: "Dont destroy the school. Don't bang the doors. It is your school. If you don't have a geyser at home, don't take the geyser from the school."

Public schools around the country opened on January 9 2018. While many of the children were very excited for their first day at school, some could not hold back the tears.
