AfriForum vows legal action against BELA Bill

VAAL TRIANGLE - AfriForum says president Cyril Ramaphosa's advocacy for mother-language education is mere lip service until the Basic Education Laws Amendment Bill is scrapped. They argue the current bill poses a serious threat to mother-language education, especially in Afrikaans. The civil rights organisation vows to oppose the bill, claiming it centralises power and targets Afrikaans schools. AfriForum says it is preparing for legal action if the Bill is passes. The organisation’s Alana Bailey criticises Ramaphosa for blaming schools instead of acknowledging the department's dysfunction.
