JOHANNESBURG: The ANC in Gauteng says it is outraged by threats made against MEC Panyaza Lesufi and his children by a group of white people who have accused him of “raping Afrikaans”.

This comes after an effigy of Lesufi was paraded in the capital this week, apparently due to his work towards equalising education and amending language policy in schools.

The incident happened outside the office of the Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga on Wednesday.

Lesufi tweeted a picture showing a dummy image of himself being hung on a tree by two white men.

He wrote: “These morons came to our offices to ‘hang’ me! We defeated your racists grandparents, you are nothing!”
