EFF Believes WCED Dismissed Brackenfell Racism
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) will challenge Western Cape Education Department's (WCED) statements that no race exclusions took place at the Brackenfell High event saga. The EFF insists that the Minister was dismissing the allegations of racism from the beginning.
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) will challenge Western Cape Education Department's (WCED) statements that no race exclusions took place at the Brackenfell High event saga. The EFF insists that the Minister was dismissing the allegations of racism from the beginning, even before the matter was further looked into.
Debbie Schäfer, the Minister of Education Western Cape, has confirmed that the alleged whites-only Brackenfell High event was a private function organised by parents and that no exclusions based on race were made.
Schäfer also said that there were no grounds to take action against the teachers, which the EFF were demanding should be fired for their involvement.
Now, Western Cape EFF chairperson Melikhaya Xego says he expected a whitewashed investigation from the WCED.
We expected that. The racism in the Western Cape will never be exposed by the Democratic Alliance. They are beneficiaries of this whole system. They cannot do anything that will undo the beneficiation of white people in the Western Cape.
He continued to say that those who wereon the receiving end of the racism was not contacted, nor was the EFF who has been fighting against since the matter came to light.
"The victims that raised the matter with EFF.... they say they were shocked and didn't even know there was an investigation. The question is: who did they investigate, without consulting the victims and actual complainant which is the EFF," said Xego.
Other individuals were also not completely on board with the Department's report while Schäfer's spokesperson, Kerry Mauchline, said the report is based on facts.
The EFF plans to issue a memorandum of demands to the High School.
An interdict was taken out by the School Governing Body to stop the EFF from protesting and is set to be heard in court on 22 December.
