At Bartimea School for the Deaf and Blind at Thaba Nchu, the administration building was set on fire. According to OFM’s twitter feed, they have been alerting parents and the public about what was happening during the event. One tweet even asked parents to come get their children because they were not safe.
According to the Education Department’s Howard Ndaba, the unrest was caused by a fence established between the boys and girls hostels which had been constructed in April this year. The intent behind establishing the fence was to to help prevent sexual activity.
