Rights organisation wants Parktown Boys' High principal suspended

Meanwhile, Enoch Mpianzi's family and the SAHRC's Buang Jones jumped over the Nyati Bush and River Break campsite fence.

Women & Men Against Child Abuse (WMACA) are calling on the principal of Parktown Boys' High School to be suspended, pending the outcome of the inquest into Enoch Mpianzi's death.

WMACA director, Miranda Jordan says the principle ignored the student governing body's protocols around safety by not having a roll call when the pupils got onto the bus and did not immediately send a search-and-rescue party when Mpianzi was reported missing by pupils.

He did not listen when the children reported Enoch's missing. It was daylight, it is possible that they would have found him quite soon afterwards and perhaps been able to save him.

The principal and teachers who were at the camp, the teachers were far from the actual activities that were happening and this is not the first time.

Miranda Jordan, Director - Women & Men Against Child Abuse

I think one of our big problems with Mr [Malcolm] Williams is the fact that there is huge a lack of transparency, there is no open dialogue.

We have not seen some true remorse coming out in a statement from the principal and from the SGB.

Meanwhile, after a few hours of waiting outside the Nyati Bush and River Break campsite and being refused access, Eyewitness News (EWN) reports that the family led the SAHRC into the campsite after being forced to jump over the fence at the entrance.

EWN reporter Kgomotso Modise says the camp has refused to cooperate with the SAHRC.

Whether there will be issues of trespassing we are not sure at this stage.

The camp has refused to assist or cooperate with the commission at this point.
