Is that a black DA beret that I see there? And I would have thought solidariteit would be more aligned to FF+ (needless to say it will be based on language and humanitarian values) than DA?
Schweizer-Reneke - The North West MEC for Education, Sello Lehari, and the department are no longer opposing Thursday's urgent application by suspended Laerskool Schweizer-Reneke teacher Elana Barkhuizen to return to her post.
Lehari told labour union Solidarity late Wednesday afternoon that he decided to withdraw his opposition to Barkhuizen's urgent application before the Johannesburg Labour Court to have her suspension set aside.
Lehari indicated that he will abide by the decision of the court.
Lawyer Werner Human said the application is still on the roll and the case will go-ahead as planned, as the court must rule on the legality of the suspension.
Lehari indicated to Solidarity that he will abide by the court's ruling.
T he suspension of Laerskool Schweizer-Reneke teacher Elana Barkhuizen is expected to take centre stage in the Labour Court in Johannesburg on Thursday when it hears an urgent application she lodged.
The school dominated headlines two weeks ago when a photograph of Grade R pupils went viral on social media. It showed black pupils sitting separately from white pupils.
Barkhuizen was then suspended, pending an investigation.
However, with the assistance of trade union Solidarity, she filed court papers alleging that her suspension was factually flawed.
In the court papers, she argued that she should not have been suspended because she was not the teacher who separated the pupils, adding that she was never given an opportunity to correct the misinformation.
She also contended that she was not informed of the intention to have her suspended, and was not provided with reasons.
Bwahahaha. The ANC are such useless fekkers:
