Julius Malema is now demanding that the Department of Basic Education closes schools as the country experiences a third wave of Covid-19 infections. He also put a time limit on this demand and threatened action from the EFF should it not happen.


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.


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.


Current and former Brackenfell students have now also spoken out on racism experienced at the school and Brackenfell continues to be slashed following an alleged 'whites-only' event. The school is now taking their response to the protests another step forward.


The drama filled situation at Brackenfell High School has died down but continues in the background. The debacle has even managed to garner a hashtag of it's own on social media. Now, even the Premier is stepping in as the parties involved are being urged to hash out the issue through dialogue instead of fists.


Fists flying, police firing stun grenades and angry confrontations were the order of the day outside the Brackenfell High School this morning.  Protests that started on Friday continued today and looked like they could escalate further as tension and anger grew on both sides.


The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) are now calling for the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) to remove the Administrator from his position. They now claiming that the Administrator has turned the financial aid scheme into a 'mafia operation'.


The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has started protesting against SASSA and decisions they have made concerning providing financial support to South Africans during the pandemic. They are calling this the 'EFF Labour Desk March' as they march to the Department of Labour and SASSA offices.


NSFAS making the decision to pull the funding from thousands of students has not  been going down well. The EFF Students Command are now giving their response to this position taken by NSFAS, which speaks on the possibility of financial exclusions, by also pointing the finger at NSFAS Administrator, Randall Carolissen, who supports the financial aid scheme's decision.


Opposition parties have been voicing their opinions about the President's decision to allow other sectors to operate under level 3. Parties have mixed opinions about the President's decision.


The EFF Student Command believe in empowering students politically. In order to do so, they have launched an Online Political School. 


Four students were stabbed at the University of Limpopo in an attacked that is believed to be linked to student politics on the campus.
