Aaron Bakwela, 17, who is in Grade 9 at the school, was allegedly suspended after he finished writing last term’s exams. His family claim his suspension was discriminatory because they are foreigners from Tanzania.
The family raised their concerns on Wednesday, following the postponement of their son’s murder case.
Daniel, 16, was killed outside his school last month in a suspected gang-related attack. His alleged killer, Mohammed Mwela, is out on bail.
Speaking outside the Joburg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, the family of the deceased complained about the slow wheels of justice, and the unfairness of Aaron’s suspension.
