Violence outside a South African school between residents and activists from the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) over alleged racism could be used to “cause racial polarisation”, President Cyril Ramaphosa has warned.
The EFF said its members were attacked by “right-wingers” while protesting against a whites-only graduation party.
The school in Cape Town said it had nothing to do with the event.
In a statement, Mr Ramaphosa said that “the spectacle of parents and protestors coming to blows at the school gate is deeply unfortunate”.
White-minority rule ended in South Africa in 1994. ENDS
