Lesufi Slams Effigy In His Likeness: ‘These Morons Came To ‘Hang’ Me!’

Inside Education

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi sent a tweet with the following words last night.

“These morons came to our offices to “hang” me! We defeated your racists grandparents, you are nothing!”

This was in reference to an effigy, a roughly made model of a person that is made in order to be damaged or destroyed as a protest, was made in his likeness.

This effigy was paraded in Tshwane on Tuesday and then later hanged on a tree at the Department of Basic Education offices.

Lesufi said this was done because of the work Gauteng Education has done towards equalising education.

Lesufi tweeted: “These morons came to our offices to “hang” me! We defeated your racists grandparents, you are nothing! (sic).”

“They have upped it now to this level,” said Lesufi

He said he has reported the incident to the police.

Lesufi added that the attack was “an insult, not to me, but to those who want equal education for all kids in the country.”

He said some people were unhappy that he wanted schools to be open for all children, but would not just leave it at that.

 Lesufi also tweeted that his children have also been intimidated. They have been told to tell their father “to stop doing what he is doing”.

To this he replied: “I am not worried. I went through worse things during those worse days of apartheid. It (the effigy) is an insult to anyone who believes in non-racial education for all.”

“They have been threatening me, and my children in particular, for quite some time,” said Lesufi, who went through something similar in February.
