- The drama unfolding in Brackenfell has spilled over into social media as a woman demands to know why Panyaza Lesufi, the Gauteng education MEC was not doing anything about it
- He took the time to give her a geography lesson and at the same time explaining why he wasn't doing anything
- She did not take it well and tried to save face by calling him rude and still tried to make it his fault
The drama unfolding in Brackenfell has got a lot of people angry. One woman was incensed and wanted to know why Panyaza Lesufi, the Gauteng education MEC was not doing anything about it.
"Ntate Panyaza @Lesufi your silence is damning. It can't be that a group of 5-6 people are harshly attacked in front of one of your schools, with the sole aim to address their issues, are punched, kicked and stoned."
She was about to get schooled in Geography by the Gauteng head of education. He took the time to reply to her.
"I will assume that geography was not your best subject at school. Cape Town is NOT in Gauteng. Your apology is noted."
She was quite put out by the fact that he had just publically humiliate her and tried to save face with an explanation and at the same time, telling him off for being rude.
A clip of parents storming towards protesting EFF members at the Brackenfell High School has been shared online. In the clip, the angry parents are using vulgar language to try and persuade the protestors to abandon their protests.
Not long into the clip, a fight breaks out between a parent and one of the protestors, resulting in a brief moment of chaos. Screaming, running and more shouting ensues while the fight gets broken up. Later on, the two groups can be seen dangerously hurling stones at each other.
Meanwhile, Twitter users who also viewed the clip shared their thoughts on all the commotion. While many of them sided with the EFF, a lot of them questioned the EFF on making the decision to protest while students were writing their exams.
