The EFF has given the High Court an undertaking that it won’t disrupt exams at Brackenfell High School. However, the School Governing Body (SGB) of Brackenfell High School has failed in its bid to obtain an urgent court interdict in the Western Cape High Court to prohibit the EFF from holding any further protests outside the school. The EFF opposed the application.
The party is currently protesting against a matric function, attended only by white pupils. The court has postponed the urgent application by the school to stop the protests.
This to allow the party to file its arguments in the matter. Brackenfell High School says it’s not against the protest but doesn’t want it to play out on the perimeter of the school.
It says it’s trying to protect pupils and staff, and ensure matrics can complete their exams in peace. The EFF, however, says its intention is not to be disruptive. The matter will be back in court on Monday.
