SA government opens centre to support matric class 2019

The South African Department of Social Development has opened its Gender-Based Violence Command Center to matriculants who may be anxious about their results. The matric class of 2019 will receive their results tonight, and reports of depression and suicide tend to be on the increase during this time. The Department urges matriculants and their parents to make use of the Command Centre to receive counselling and support from trained Social Workers. Channel Africa's Jane Rabothata spoke to the department's spokesperson, Lumka Oliphant.
