Gaut­eng Ed­u­ca­tion MEC Panyaza Le­sufi had quite a week fight­ing racism. First was Wind­sor House Acad­emy pri­vate school where 11 black girls were sent home over their hair­styles. Next was Klip­spruit West Sec­ondary, where some coloured par­ents did not want a black prin­ci­pal. Last up was the elite St John’s Col­lege where a white teacher was fi­nally fired for his racist re­marks. How low can Andile Mngxi­tama and his band, Black First Land First, go? Re­cently, the group was barred by the court for threat­en­ing jour­nal­ists. On Thurs­day, it dis­rupted an event or­gan­ised by amaBhun­gane to dis­cuss state cap­ture. It has no re­spect for the Con­sti­tu­tion, which en­sures the right to gather and as­so­ciate with whomever one wants.
