FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ON SAPA WIRES ANC NORTH WEST CONDEMNS RACIAL ATTACK ON ANC NW CHAIRPERSON SON

The ANC in North West condemns in the strongest terms the racial attack mooted against the son of the ANC North West Provincial Chairperson, cde Supra Mahumapelo, by an educator at the Potchefstroom High School for boy on Friday, 16 August 2013. The attack happened in one of the school laboratory, during a practical experiment class. A white male educator poured cde Supra's son with white paint on his school jacket. When confronted by cde Supra, the school headmaster did not show any sign of remorse. We are however pleased that the Department of Basic Education is investigating this occurrence.

We appeal to the Department to handle the matter with the necessary speed it deserves. We hope and wish that such racial motivated occurrences should not befell anyone in our province as they are despicable and demeaning. Equally, we call upon the Minister of Higher Education and Training to institute a commission focusing on racial discrimination in all former apartheid institutions of learning, such as the University of the North West, Potchefstroom campus, which according to some students the university still use apartheid language policies to discriminate against African students. The ANC is dumbfounded that 19 years into democracy, we still have individuals who use racial tactics and strategies to discriminate against individuals.

This type of behaviour and attitude by this educator is foreign to the latter and spirit of the Constitution of our country. We cannot tolerate such kind of behaviour to be perpetuated against anyone. Institutions of learning should not be used to perpetual racial discrimination. As the Constitution of South Africa asserts; individuals may not unfairly discriminate directly or indirectly against anyone on one or more grounds, including race, gender, sex, ethnic or social origin, colour, religion, conscience, belief, cultural language and birth.

Our country is one, sovereign, democratic state found on the principle of human dignity, the achievement of equality and the advancement of human right, non-racialism and non-sexism.
