Volunteers who helped in an campaign feeding schoolchildren in Khayelitsha near Cape Town were arrested after apparently helping themselves to the food that was intended for learners.
The volunteers helped to provide food for approximately 1 157 pupils from the Isiphiwo Primary School in Harare twice a day.
After the police received a tip-off, five women who were responsible for cooking the food was arrested. They apparently took the groceries to their home. Police found goods to the value of R15 000’s that include large quantities of maize flour and vegetables.
This is the second case reported this year in which volunteers were arrested because they were stealing the food at school nutrition schemes.
