Parents at Brackenfell High school in Cape Town clashed with members of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) on Monday, November 9, during an anti-racism demonstration. Scuffles were reported at the scene after parents reportedly confronted activists over what they had come to do. Brackenfell High was accused of being racist after a video of an all-white matriculation party appeared online.

Further protests are likely in Cape Town over the near term and are likely to be accompanied by localized transport disruptions.


Those in Cape Town are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, plan alternative routes if traveling, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
