Cape Town – A principal who was shot in the face at a Philippi early childhood development (ECD) centre in Cape Town is still in a critical condition.
The teacher was shot at close range and the bullet went through her eye, in full view of children aged five and younger when armed men stormed the Rise and Shine ECD centre.
The South African Education Project (SAEP) is calling for urgent intervention from safety structures to ensure staff and children centres are safe.
According to SAEP, two men entered that ECD centre, just as one of the woman living at the facility entered the gate.
The men came in under the pretence of looking for an ECD facility for a of six-month-old baby.
