The Western Cape Education Department (WCED) has reportedly found no evidence of racism at Brackenfell High School, which was recently in the news after violence erupted following allegations of racism.
According to eNCA, the department’s preliminary report has cleared the school of racism and did not find any evidence to suggest that racism was a problem at the school. Violent clashes between the EFF, Parents and residents of the area was dispersed when police was forced to use water canons and stun grenades.
The details are still not clear at the moment but MEC Debbie Schafer said that report would be released soon.
The school insisted that it was not part of the arrangement of an alleged ‘whites only’ matric ball which sparked the initial outrage even though the event was attended by two teachers at the school.
