A memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Scientology Volunteer Ministers, a volunteer organization providing property sanitization to many government institutions on a free of cost basis was signed.

“Sanitization of the campuses and residences was prioritized as one of the first steps to prepare for the ‘back to work’ process after the level 5 lockdown was announced by the president, Cyril Ramaphosa. Sanitizing composed all blocks and including offices, kitchens, bathrooms/toilets, boardrooms, stores, common areas/passages, classrooms, labs, lecture halls, auditoriums, residences, library, chapel, great hall, etc.  A disinfectant product approved by both the department of health and EPA called, “Decon7” was used to sanitize the campus surroundings and offices,” shared Mr. Leornard Swana: Director Projects and Services.
