E Cape parents concerned about testing of pupils

Parents of pupils at the Makaula Senior Secondary School hostel, in the Eastern Cape, say they were not consulted after a COVID-19 outbreak at the facility three weeks ago.

The parents also claim their children were tested for the virus, without guardian or parental consent.

Authorities, however, say they have followed the correct protocols.

Our reporter, Mbasa Khwaza, unpacks the story.
