The Free State Department of Education’s Tate Makgoe sent condolences to the family and Reseamohetse School in Theunissen after learning of the passing of a female teacher, Sarah Motsitsi (26).
Motsitsi was shot dead by her ex-boyfriend yesterday at 14:00. “I am reeling with shock and saddened by the sudden passing of such a great teacher,” said Makgoe.
Motsitsi won the National Teaching Awards, Technology Category at Provincial and National level and received a car from Vodacom as one of her prizes. She joined Reseamohetse School in 2015, teaching mathematics.
The school described Motsitsi as hard working, energetic, valuable and helpful. She was loved by learners, teachers and parents.
“We have lost a great teacher and future leader,” said Makgoe.
The family is still finalising funeral arrangements.
