Man assaulted amid protest at Hoërskool Overvaal
A man has been assaulted, allegedly by a member of the Economic Freedom Fighters, during a protest outside Hoërskool Overvaal in Vereeniging, the school at the centre of the recent admissions court case.
EFF members gathered outside the school in the early hours of Wednesday morning to show their displeasure with what they deem the Department of Education's slow pace in transforming schools.
The man, believed to be a parent, is said to have provoked motorists signaling their support for the protest.
Eyewitness News reporter Hitekani Magwedze was there.
Another vehicle came and hooted in support again of the EFF supporters. He basically banged the window and shouted at the driver. This is when EFF supporters then approached him and assaulted him. That is exactly when police intervened.Hitekani Magwedze, Eyewitness News reporter
