EFF assists mother in struggle to enrol pupil
An East London mother who said she had battled to get her child enrolled at Stirling Primary School, eventually called on the EFF for support.
Five police officers went to the school on Friday morning when the woman and two EFF members, including EFF regional secretary Sibongile Aloni, arrived at the school.
The Dispatch was on the scene when the mother, who did not want to be named, went into the school, with the red-uniformed EFF pair standing outside.
She emerged from Stirling after 30 minutes saying the school headmaster had put her child at the top of a waiting list. She claimed she had previously tried to enrol her child at the school three times.
The mother made a number of claims about the school, but neither Stirling nor provincial education department spokesperson Malibongwe Mtima responded to the allegations.
Aloni said two mothers had visited the EFF office to ask for support with their enrolment issues. “If the matter is not resolved we will be back [at the school] and we will not rest until these children are admitted,” he said.
