The Danie Malan Primary School in Pretoria North was the subject of a controversial protest on Monday, after EFF supporters and a collective of parents attempted to shut-down the venue earlier this morning.

The drama unfolded shortly before 8:00. A disgruntled group brought chains and locks to the school gates, in order to close the facility for the day. It’s understood that the party has grievances with the placement system, which has left a number of young pupils without a school to attend – this after learners were told to return to the classroom last month.

Police arrived at the scene to disperse the protests – and remove the makeshift locks – shortly after the school day was meant to start. Parents were advised to make ‘alternative arrangements’ for their children on Monday. Videos uploaded from the scene show a volatile atmosphere between demonstrators, and parents concerned about ‘learning disruptions’.

Adriana Randall, the DA’s Thaba Mogale-Constituency Head, blasted the disruption to ‘crucial learning time’. “It is extremely concerning that the EFF is disrupting learning and teaching at Pretoria North Schools. While the DA understands the frustration of the delayed placing of learners, it is unacceptable that learning is disrupted. We are living in a ‘new normal’ due to the COVID-19 pandemic and every minute of teaching time is valuable and cannot be lost.”

However, the FF Plus are much more annoyed with Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi “A few days ago, EFF members also protested in front of Akasia High School, the majority of whom are black, for admission. The department, led by MEC Panyaza Lesufi, has been struggling for some time to meet its infrastructure objectives, with the result that school communities are then pitted against each other. Lesufi is to blame for this unrest.”
