NYAKALLO TEFU

PUPILS from the Pretoria Girls High School on Thursday protested against racism and inequality.

Pupils at the school say their concerns from 2016 have not been addressed.

In an interview with ENCA, one of the student leaders who was part of the protests in 2016, Zulaikha Patel, said the school continues to silence black voices.

The learners are calling for the school to change its discriminatory systems if they support #BlackLivesMatter movement. https://twitter.com/MmuiWabatho/status/1273584630252408839?s=20

In August 2016, pupils at the school protested against an instruction given to black students to straighten their hair, saying it discriminated against them.
