The MEC for Education, Mmaphefo Matsemela condemned in strongest terms the alleged burning of the school.

I take this moment to condemn in its strongest terms the alleged burning of Ramotse Primary school. Such incidents are clearly targeted at delaying the provisioning of education to an African child. These incidents are aimed at destroying the right to education enshrined by the South African Constitution. We wish the full might of the law to find those responsible and send them to jail where they belong.

The school has opened a case of arson with the local police station.
