What happened?

According to a letter of complaint by the school, the incident occurred on Wednesday, 11 October 2023, when a group of learners were standing outside the school premises waiting to be picked up by their parents and scholar transport services.

According to one of the learners shouted that ‘Sundowns lost their match last week’, referring to the MTN8 final that Mamelodi Sundowns lost to Orlando Pirates on penalties.

This allegedly triggered Mokwena, who was passing by in his car, to reverse and confront the learner.

He then grabbed him violently by his school uniform and asked: ‘Who said that’.

He also threatened to whip him and slap him and demanded an apology.

The whole scene was captured on video and went viral on social media.

Meanwhile, other learners who close to the scene had a different scenario to what was written in the letter the school wrote.

He said Mokwena reacted the way he did after his car was hit by a golf ball by one of the learners.

What was the reaction?

The incident sparked outrage and condemnation from the public, especially from football fans and parents.

The school management also expressed their shock and disappointment at Mokwena’s behaviour and said they had reported the matter to the Gauteng Department of Education.

The department confirmed that they were aware of the complaint  and that they had dispatched a psychosocial support team to offer necessary support to the affected learner.

What is the status?

It is not clear what action will be taken against Mokwena by the department or by his club.
