A Limpopo matric learner will be allowed to write his Business Paper 2 after he successfully argued his case at the Constitutional Court. The apex court found Johannes Moko’s right to education was violated by the acting principal at Malusi Secondary School. The learner was told that he could not write the exam because he missed extra lessons.
He was denied access to the exam room. Moko approached a lower court but the matter was struck off the roll as not urgent. But The highest court in the land felt differently. It says Moko must be afforded the opportunity to write the exam before January 15th. The Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga, the Limpopo Education MEC as well as quality assurer Umalusi have been ordered to pay the learner’s legal costs. They did not oppose the application.
