ANC, EFF members to appear in court after Hoërskool Overvaal fracas

Unlike Wednesday morning, protesters had not yet started picketing outside the school. " / Protesters are pictured inside a police vehicle following the petrol bombing of a police auto outside Hoerskool Overvaal in Vereeniging on the second day of protests there".

As more government vehicles have arrived on the scene, some parents have come to the school to fetch their children.

Protesters from the EFF have mobilised around a school in Vereeniging to show their displeasure with the pace of transformation initiated by the Gauteng Education Department.

According to TimesLive, the parent had earlier made a rude gesture towards EFF protesters before accompanying his daughter onto the school premises.

The high court found in favour of the school's argument that it does not have the capacity to admit the additional learners.

Some of the parents of the 55 pupils who were not accepted into the school remained adamant that protest action should continue.

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi says the issues must be resolved as a matter of urgency as no child should go to school in fear of rubber bullets and tear gas.

But the judge ruled the department's instructions to the school were unlawful.

"The learners were refused entry to the school on the basis of language‚ contrary to requirements of admission process‚" he said.
