Khabazela Secondary in Hillcrest which faced social ills such as pregnancies, overcrowding and poor infrastructure, has been applauded for the improvements it has made to rectify the problems since 2015.
During her visit, the KwaZulu-Natal Legislature Speaker Lydia Johnson, complimented the school for the improvements it had made. Her visit was a follow-up to previous ones in January and June.
