MJC investigates halal issue at Kuils River school

A few weeks ago, a row erupted over a non-halaal caterer at the Western Cape Sports School in Kuils River after the parents of nine Muslim pupils accused the school governing body (SGB) of appointing Star Catering from Khayelitsha without parents’ knowledge. The parents claimed their children had been consuming food not permissible for Muslims for two weeks at the school and this infringed on their constitutional and human rights.
