“They moved closer and closer...Somebody started yelling...I tried to see a friendly face somewhere in the crowd—someone who maybe could help. I looked into the face of an old woman and it seemed a kind face, but when I looked at her again, she spat on me.”

“It gives me a painful feeling to be taken from class and not to be able to learn like my classmates just because I have dreadlocks. I just want to learn like the other learners.”

“I am worried I am falling behind especially in maths. When the administrator takes me to the staffroom I sometimes sit there and do maths exercises by myself. I want to return to class.”

LeratoRadebe:

state s case urgency
STATE’S CASE - URGENCY
  • The matter was not urgent
  • Mr Radebe caused his own urgency by delaying. He should have brought the matter to court much sooner.
state s case mootness
STATE’S CASE - MOOTNESS
  • A matter is moot if the situation has already resolved itself and there is no need for the court to get involved
  • Saying the Department had already registered Lerato at a different school so court did not need to get involved

The word from Wilfred Phalatsi JA Free State HC:

"Not leaving this court without making sure this child in school on Monday.“

slide14

RADEBE JUDGMENT

“It cannot be overemphasised that religion is a very sensitive issue and that religious intolerance can ruin the whole country.”

slide15

RADEBE JUDGMENT

“The courts of this country must be alert and proactive and root out the evil of religious intolerance in any form. They should nip it in the bud wherever and whenever it raises its ugly head.”

slide16

RADEBE JUDGMENT

“I would appeal to the respondents and the powers that be, to educate and make our people aware of the importance and advantages of religious diversity.”

Greetings in the name of the Most High JAH RASTAFARI I

On behalf of RASTAFARI HOUSE OF NYAHBINGHI we want to thank you and your team, and Equal Education ( law centre) for playing the important role by assisting one of our child in Rastafari community, to be accepted at school as a true born African, representing her true identity. This is part of the work done by Equal Education to educate our people, today our brothers and sisters learned another chapter in life.

We also appreciate the role played by Equal Education by relieving, and healing the stress, pains and confusion that was trying to break the family of Elder Radebe's family, we are glad to tell you that, the family is united as one now, and love is the way of life. Lastly we wish all the best, more strength for Equal Education to keep on  representing the, future of future leaders of this country. 

Regards

RasankiMotaung

Blessed.
