Ayanda Borotho has opened up about her children failing their school term because they only failed Afrikaans. The Isibaya actress took to Instagram a few days ago to share her views on the matter.
The stunner shared that she feels "trapped" and "defeated" because Mzansi is still having the conversation about Afrikaans being taught at schools. The star said in a video she shared on Instagram:
"My children speak Sesotho and isiZulu properly... English they manage and in fact when it comes to the curriculum as a language they do well in it for people who have been fully exposed to the language [English] about a year ago. They get Cs and Bs."
The star questioned why her children failed the whole term because they did well in other subjects.
"Yet, here's a language which is a fourth language, you fail my children because they failed Afrikaans? And you fail them, having aced Maths, having aced other subjects... You fail my children on the basis of failing Afrikaans as a second language."

Ayanda's fans took to her comment section to share mixed reactions to her post. Check out some of their comments below:
"But what are you suggesting on this matter? That there should be no second language?"
"Such a big issue, I have been struggling myself and it has been eating me that my son failed the past two terms because of Afrikaans. We have asked the school of other options but ke dololo. Basasiphethe sham and our leaders babusy ngezinto ezingananqondo instead of focusing on our future (our kids). Kunzima being a South African or an African nje in general."
"You should see how my boys get frustrated with Afrikaans it breaks my heart, they enjoy and are good in other subjects. They can speak Isizulu and Sotho. Our leaders are failing us kunini ikhulunywa lendaba ye Afrikaans."
"Am 100% behind you Ayah, Afrikaans isn’t useful for us as Blacks to speak coz its not like doors will open because of that language."
