Lesufi has instructed the Johannesburg South District to support the school in managing this matter.

“What I witnessed on that video is totally unacceptable and cannot be tolerated. There is no amount of anger that can justify any form of violence in our schools. We denounce all acts of ill-discipline that may compel learners to behave violently.”
