On Thursday 9 April, 500 Equal Education (EE) members from Nquthu will march to the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Department of Education's office in Pietermartizburg to demand scholar transport. The students, like many others in rural areas, have to walk long distances of up to 24 kilometres a day to get to and from school.
