Durban-KZN lost 253 teachers to Covid-19, KZN MEC Kwazi Mshengu said on Tuesday morning during the release of the province’s results. Mshengu said he presented the results with a heavy heart due to Covid-19 related illnesses, having lost 253 teachers and 38 non-teaching staff.
Our frontline soldiers who died with their boots on are dedicated to the 2020 NSC results. “We are pained by the awareness of the devastation and hurt that has been inflicted on their families as we pay homage to these frontline workers in the system.
The courage of all our fallen heroes and heroines, together with all the hard-working workers who continue to risk their lives in the service of the nation, will be etched in our hearts forever. History will remember all of them as fearless fighters who, in their struggle against this invisible enemy, gave it all. May all their souls rest in eternal peace.”
