The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has called on the Department of Education to build more schools in the city of Mbombela in Mpumalanga.

The party is leading a march against Laerskool Nelspruit and Nellie Miere pre-school, Bergvlam Primary and Nelspruit Primary, to submit a memorandum in support of parents who have had their children refused admission by the schools.

The party will also demand that the schools balance the number of Afrikaans and English classes.

EFF provincial leader Collen Sedibe says, “We have received many complaints that there are a number of students that are still on the waiting list since the school opening, and as things stands the school is still prolonging, and they are missing out… and secondly, we want them to balance the subjects, Afrikaans and English what we have established is Afrikaans classes in all the Grades, they are more than the English classes.
