                                                It has taken over a week for the Gauteng Department of Social Development to publicly comment on this <strong>Eyewitness News</strong> expose and it said that it needed another five days to close the illegal creche down.

The department’s spokesperson Feziwe Ndwayana: “It has been established that in this ECD, they are not registered with the Department of Social Development and it is in contravention of the Children’s Act. We are in consultation with the parents that have kids there and the HOD will issue a notice for closure.”
