There is a concerning level of uproar at a high school in Centurion – after a student wearing EFF clothing was kicked off the premises on Career Day. The incident was caught on camera, and sure enough, it has sparked a fierce backlash.

Hoërskool Uitsig: Centurion school under fire for ‘physically ejecting’ EFF supporter

In the clip that was posted online, the youngster can be seen in his EFF gear, marching through school. A security guard then grabs the boy and drags him away. The manhandling of the student has upset the Red Berets, and Obakeng Ramabodu – a local EFF leader in Tshwane – has vowed to demonstrate at the school ‘for the foreseeable future’.

“In Centurion’s Hoërskool Uitsig, a learner was manhandled during Career Day because he wore EFF regalia… as is in line with his future dream – to become an EFF politician. We shall report here at Hoërskool Uitsig High School every day, until racism come to an end.”
