The Shiselweni Region has 13 schools that are not ready to be opened tomorrow because they do not meet expectations of schools that have materials in place to fight COVID-19.

This is according to a statement released by the ministry of education and training obtained by this publication. According to this information, 57 of the schools in the Shiselweni Region were visited to see if they complied with the requirements expected from schools to operate under the COVID-19 outbreak. The schools’ level of compliance was found to be very low – at level one.


The schools that are not ready are from nine Tinkhundla centres under the region. The schools include Mlambo High School (Maseyisini), Nhlangano Central High (Shiselweni II), Diamond Valley Academy (Shiselweni II), Salem High School (Mtsambama), Ntjanini/Mhawu High School (Ngudzeni), Engudzeni High School (Ngudzeni), Ngwane Central High School (Zombodze Emuva), Ekuthuleni High School (Zombodze Emuva), Jericho High School (Hosea), Masiphula High School (Shiselweni I), Ngololweni High School (Sandleni), Ndunayithini High School (Sigwe), and Mncikazi High School (Sigwe).

Minister of Education and Training Lady Howard-Mabuza confirmed that the 13 schools were not ready to operate under the dangerous COVID-19 outbreak because they could put their children in danger.

 Officials from the ministry of education and training have to re-visit the schools to help them be ready to house their children and teachers to do their work.

Some schools were found to be moderate when rated to see if they were ready to operate.

The ministry of education and training officials have to revisit these schools to verify their new status. Schools that were found to have fully complied were 25.  It was gathered that the schools have to keep maintaining their high level of compliance.
